Tour du Port de Montréal et fleuve

The two-year project will be overseen by UdeM’s Interuniversity Research Centre on Enterprise Networks, Logistics and Transportation (CIRRELT).

It will make it possible to lay the foundations for Canada’s first domestic green shipping corridor, in accordance with provincial, national and international objectives to completely decarbonize the maritime sector by 2050. The project will include a regulatory framework for decarbonizing the commercial navigation and port industry, a bibliography of data sources on greenhouse gas emissions in the St. Lawrence ecosystem, a comparative analysis of best practices in eco-efficiency, a list of reference scenarios for decarbonizing the marine and port system, and more.

This initiative is fully in line with the collaborative partnership announced in 2022 between the ports of Montreal, Quebec City and Trois-Rivières, aimed specifically at greening their facilities, operations and supply chains (link to press release). It also supports the three ports’ efforts to join the Government of Canada’s Net-Zero Challenge.
