The Clydebank Declaration represents the beginning of a multi-year process to develop green shipping corridors. As such, launching the Declaration is the first step on that voyage in establishing at least six corridors by middle of this decade, across all signatory States.

We are now moving, with other States and the industry, to exploring, designing and then delivering a corridor or corridors in the UK.
