In its 9th year, the GreenPort Congress, which was held on the 15-17 October 2014 provided decision makers from the port community - port authorities, terminal operators, shipping lines, logistics operators - with a meeting place to both learn about and discuss the latest in sustainable development and environmental practice to enable them to effectively implement the changes needed to reduce their carbon footprint and to be more sensitive to environmental considerations.

The Congress highlighted the innovations in equipment and technology to allow port users to adhere to policy, whilst illustrating practical solutions through case studies from the global logistics chain.

The 2nd GreenPort Cruise conference was held on 14 October 2014, the day before the GreenPort Congress.
