The Green technology and Alternative Fuels Platform was established as a sub-group under the Maritime Working Group by HOD 47-2014. The Platform is lead by Finland and Sweden. The aim of the Platform is to enhance
the co-operation between the public and private stakeholders in promoting development and use of green technology and alternative fuels in shipping in the Baltic Sea. Early introduction of alternative fuels and green technology in the Baltic will reduce emissions from shipping.
The establishment of the platform stems from a commitment agreed at the
HELCOM Ministerial Meeting 3 October 2013 to work towards the creation
of a joint "Green Technology and Alternative Fuels Platform for
Shipping" together with other regional actors in the Baltic Sea.The first steps of the Platform were taken at the kickoff event in January 2014 organized jointly by HELCOM and the Finnish Presidency of the Council of the Baltic Sea States (CBSS). A "Roadmap for future actions" was drafted during the event.
