Carbon emissions generated by human activity definitely contribute to climate change. Maritime and logistics flows, port operations and related industries leave a particularly large carbon footprint in strait areas. The aim of PASSAGE project is to reduce the consequences of such flows and activities on climate change by promoting low-carbon initiatives. The long-term competitiveness of the straits depends on it. In the context of a low-carbon society, maritime and coastal zones hold a specific potential based on maritime resources and sea-related innovation – the so-called “blue growth”.
