The Vancouver Maritime Centre for Climate (VMCC) is a grassroots industry-led initiative dedicated to accelerating the transition of shipping in British Columbia to a zero-emissions industry. VMCC recognizes that maritime operators face huge current and approaching regulatory hurdles in terms of emissions reduction and ultimately elimination with no clear path to meet such targets. The organization is working to bring together key players to share information and experience to facilitate the quicker mobilization and implementation of green technologies. The goal is to help ship owners and supporting land-based infrastructure to achieve zero-emission operations faster. VMCC’s practical, results-driven approach includes helping to commercialize products offered by local technology and service providers by giving them access to a large member platform and discussion forums.
