The Future of Logistics Is Post Carbon

Moving goods and people from place to place in a carbon constrained future will be dependent on sailing vessels, hybrid/fossil free electric ships, and people powered transport for first and last mile logistics.

Future Proof Ships,
Liberty from Fossil Fuel

Locally built, from locally sourced and recycled materials, crewed with locally trained mariners, home ported along the Hudson, the Harbor, and the canals, carrying locally grown, locally processed, and locally manufactured goods – with liberty from fossil fuels, these future proof ships will be a positive disruption to the status quo.

The International Windship Association facilitates and promotes wind propulsion for commercial shipping worldwide.

The Apollonia is the Hudson Valley’s largest carbon neutral merchant vessel.  Powered by wind and used vegetable oil,  Apollonia will transport  cargo sustainably.

For 10 years we have shipped cargo across the Atlantic by the power of the wind alone!

The Wooden Boat School was founded by the Hudson River Maritime Museum in 2015 to preserve the maritime craft traditions of the Hudson Valley and to teach a hands-on interpretation of the living history of the Hudson River.

The Good Work Institute’s mission is to cultivate, connect, and support a network of local community members who are fostering resilience and regeneration in the Hudson Valley.

Humanity has a lot of problems these days. Climate change, increasing economic inequality, crashing biodiversity, political polarization, and a global debt bubble are just a few of our worries.

Yale Climate Connections is a nonpartisan, multimedia service providing daily broadcast radio programming and original web-based reporting, commentary, and analysis on the issue of climate change.

Project Drawdown gathers and facilitates a broad coalition of researchers, scientists, graduate students, PhDs, post-docs, policy makers, business leaders and activists to assemble and present the best available information on climate solutions in order to describe their beneficial financial, social and environmental impact over the next thirty years.

Low-tech Magazine questions the blind belief in technological progress, and talks about the potential of past and often forgotten knowledge and technologies when it comes to designing a sustainable society. Interesting possibilities arise when you combine old technology with new knowledge and new materials, or when you apply old concepts and traditional knowledge to modern technology.

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.

We are establishing a professional shipping company that offers emission free transport and travel, by making use of engine-less sailing ships.

The start-up crew combines top maritime expertise that is relevant to the sailing cargo industry, decades of experience in business development and sound management expertise.

Sustainable Hudson Valley’s mission is to speed up, scale up, jazz up and leverage progress against climate change, creating communities where people and nature thrive. With a wide range of partners, we are:

  • rolling out scalable programs for specific climate solutions such as shifting to 100% renewable energy;
  • growing the market for renewable technologies through consumer education, industry training, group purchases and other incentives;
  • helping communities plan for resilience and capture opportunities for positive change in this time of crisis.
