Clean Shipping Project Platform, CSHIPP, brings together projects and organisations focused on enhancing and promoting clean shipping in the Baltic Sea region. The objective of CSHIPP is to increase the impact of and connect the dots between the several projects working for clean shipping. As the projects involved in the platform look at the shared topic of clean shipping from different angles, CSHIPP synthesises the projects’ results into a more comprehensive whole.
The activities of CSHIPP revolve around two key themes: the environmental effects of shipping and the business potential of clean shipping in the Baltic Sea Region. By discussing these themes both separately and simultaneously, CSHIPP emphasises that environmentally friendly shipping and profitable business support rather than exclude one another.
The Baltic Sea region is a frontrunner in clean shipping. However, the gap between research, business and policy making hinders further and faster development in the field. With this in mind, CSHIPP targets its activities at three groups of actors in the field of clean shipping: research organisations, businesses/industry representatives and policy makers. By carefully directing CSHIPP outputs to these three key target groups, and by bringing them into a dialogue with each other in events and workshops, CSHIPP increases the overall capacity of a wide range of maritime actors. Showcasing the results of several projects working with clean shipping enables new ideas and synergies to emerge and flourish. CSHIPP is also a strong voice for the valuable work done in projects funded by the EU.
