White Paper on Maritime Policy

Last updated: 23 March 2022

As the Norwegian government aims to halve emissions from domestic shipping and fishing by 2030, a White Paper on Maritime Policy was published in 2020 in order to provide general framework conditions for maritime activities, with particular emphasis on promoting the development of climate- and environment-friendly shipping, digitalisation of the maritime sector and Norwegian maritime competence.


It increased funding for green shipping initiatives by NOK 420 million (electrification, battery, hydrogen, etc), with guarantees for new ships and fishing vessels and the electrification of cargo ships.
