The Conference

The 12thGreenPort Congress hosted by the Port of Amsterdam this year concentrated on Cleaner, Smarter and Faster Ports.

Creating partnerships for sustainable development and better energy ambitions but also addressing the challenges that these initiatives bring.  The conference addressed how Port and City integration can be improved alongside the changing world of production and transport, the impacts of energy generation and the transition to biofuels. The GreenPort Congress focused on improving the relationship between the port, its users, customers and stakeholders, who will all be involved through out the programme.

* Port Authorities had the opportunity to engage and interact with stake holders and understand their priorities and expectations in an ever-changing market.

* Terminal Operators  had a better understanding of the effects of climate change on ports and how to reduce their Carbon Footprint as well as coping with the changing markets and demands.

* Logistics providers and shippers learnt about the interaction between port and city, how to make and manage change, and contribute to the reduction of the carbon footprint of the Port

*Shipowners had an insider’s view on the everyday issues green ports tackle to ensure sustainability is addressed, and heard about incentives for green port users and future projects creating a sustainable climate for port communities.
