Green Ports: New Front for China’s War on Pollution and Climate Change Mitigation

Register for this Event  

On July 26, join CEF for a panel discussion with Green Port experts as they assess how China’s new policies and on-the-ground efforts—such as port/vessel emissions inventories and emission control zones—are reducing pollution and climate emissions at major Chinese ports. Dr. Peng Chuansheng (China Waterborne Transport Research Institute) will lead the discussion in exploring how and why China is taking action on green ports. Ms. Freda Fung (Natural Resources Defense Council) will summarize the regulatory and incentive programs adopted in Hong Kong to control shipping and port pollution and how Hong Kong and international experiences have served as examples that inspired China’s actions. Dr. Dan Rutherford (ICCT) will draw on a port study in Shenzhen produced for the China Environment Forum to discuss how shore power and fuel-switching offer critical solutions in reducing port emissions in China.

This meeting—part of CEF’s Choke Point: Port Cities initiative—is co-sponsored with the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) and the Wilson Center’s Kissinger Institute on China and the United States.
