“ING prides itself on being a sustainability pioneer and is an original signatory to the Poseidon Principles, a framework for integrating climate considerations into lending decisions to advance international shipping’s decarbonization. The Silk Alliance marks a further and necessary step in that decarbonisation journey, and we are heartened to join key stakeholders from across the value chain. We look forward to working with all of them to take on this challenge and to make it happen.”
