General Information
The ‘Clean Shipping Project Platform’, CSHIPP, brings together projects and organisations focused on enhancing clean shipping in the Baltic Sea region (BSR). 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 synthesizes the projects’ results to provide a more holistic perspective in a concise and easily comprehensible format.

The activities of CSHIPP revolve around two key themes: the environmental effects of shipping and the business potential of clean shipping in the BSR. 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. The gap between research, business and policy making, however, hinders further and faster development in the field. With this in mind, CSHIPP targets its activities and strives to increase dialogue between three groups of actors in the field of clean shipping: research organisations, businesses/industry representatives and policy makers. By carefully targeting 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 these themes 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.
Hereon will contribute to establishing an extended Baltic Sea ship emission report as well as a report on environmental impact of shipping for different scenarios, both of which are based on Hereon’s activities in the earlier SHEBA project, funded by the ERANET BONUS.
