Mission Statement

Zero Emission Ship Technology Association (ZESTAs.)

Our Mission is to prevent catastrophic climate impacts by assisting commercial shipping to reduce emissions on a steep trajectory in line with 1.5 degrees.


To accomplish this we will:

• Influence regulators and policy makers at National & International levels to introduce legislation that obligates the uptake of zero emission technologies.

• Create a platform for zero emission ship(ZES) technologies to collaborate on ZES projects.



For Technology Providers

ZESTAs will serve as a common voice to impact legislation and regulation, seek project financing for zero emission ship projects and develop research projects for zero emission vessels and technologies.

For Shipping Industry

ZESTAs will push for legislation that levels the playing field and incentivises the uptake of zero emission ship technologies, thereby reducing first mover risk.

ZESTAs will provide high visibility by:

• Project descriptions on ZESTAs Website

• Events

• Marketing materials

• Press and Media

ZESTAs will:

• Educate the policy makers at National & International levels on the availability and technology readiness of ZEST

• Provide a database of companies and zero emission technologies by type
