Poseidon Principles

ClassNK is supporting the Signatories of the Poseidon Principles for the better and greener ship finance.

Overview of Poseidon Principles

The Poseidon Principles were established in June 2019 as a framework for integrating climate considerations into lending decisions to promote international shipping’s decarbonization.

Each Signatory of the Poseidon Principles is to conduct a quantitative assessment for the climate alignment of their shipping portfolios against the global climate goals and to disclose the result in accordance with the Technical Guidance of the Poseidon Principles.

The latest version of the Technical Guidance of the Poseidon Principles is available from the link below:
