South Korea, US Establish Busan-Tacoma Cargo Shipping Route During Climate Talks in Egypt
South Korea and the US have agreed to set up a green cargo shipping route between South Korea's port of Busan and the US port of Tacoma, which is near Seattle. This is part of their joint efforts to make shipping carbon-neutral.
The fisheries ministry says that South Korea's climate ambassador Na Kyung-won and the US's climate envoy John Kerry came to an agreement on Tuesday in Egypt on the sidelines of COP27, the UN Climate Change Conference in 2022.
On the Busan-Tacoma route, zero-emission ships are expected to run in line with the global campaign to get rid of all carbon emissions by 2050.
The ministry recently signed an agreement with the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI), which is made up of 43 countries, to work together on projects that will help meet emission reduction goals.
