The initiative provides that members of the Silk Alliance, as part of their respective areas of expertise, will develop a transition strategy towards alternative fuels for container fleets operating mainly in Asia based on the methodology "Firs movers in shipping's decarbonisation" defined by the Maritime Decarbonisation Hub of Lloyd's Register that allows a thorough comparison between different fuel transition pathways regardless of the ship typology or from the route on which it operates.

At the initiative, they joined MSC Shipmanagement, Pacific International Lines (GDP), Wan Hai Lines (WHL), X-Press Feeders, Yang Ming Marine Transport Corporation, Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M), Singfar International, Wärtsilä Corporation, Wilhelmsen Ship Management, Asian Development Bank and ING.

"The Silk Alliance," explained the head of the Lloyd's Register decarbonization program, Charles Haskell-aims to establish a specific decarbonisation strategy for the fleet and a plan for the implementation of a green corridor that includes key linkages of the maritime services network that are essential to provide maritime operators of all sizes with the resources for the transition to zero-emission fuels and ships.
