Port of Vancouver Joins Seattle, Alaska, Cruise Lines to Form Maritime 'Green Corridor'

The Port of Vancouver could soon be a part of the world's first maritime “green corridor,” a cruise route with zero greenhouse emission practices, stretching from Seattle to Alaska.

As reported by Tri City News, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority, along with other ports and cruise lines, announced on 17MAY the “First Mover Commitment,” intended to explore the feasibility of creating a green corridor in the Pacific Northwest.

According to port officials, the commitment will examine concerns over climate change, and include efforts to clearly define what a “green corridor” means. Also involved in the Green Corridor initiative are the Port of Seattle, the Borough of Juneau (Alaska), as well as cruise partners such as Princess Cruises, Holland America, Carnival, Norwegian, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity and the Cruise Lines International Association.
