Sustainable transport. What does it look like? Well, we know that electric cars are getting a lot of attention. We know about bicycles, buses and trains. But what about shipping? There was a time when all goods were moved across the ocean using nothing but the wind and the hardwork of a able crew.

This episode I was joined by Jorne Langelaan, the founder and captain of EcoClipper.

EcoClipper are a professional shipping company which will offer emission free transport and travel, by making use of engine-less sailing ships. Their state of the art sailing vessel will be an example of ultimate sustainability and seaworthiness.

Our conversation takes us on a whistle stop tour of the history of shipping, the current state of play and on to Jorne’s vision for a sustainable future for shipping.

Let’s go.
