The first GreenPort Logistic day was part of the 2010 GreenPorts Congress. This latest dedicated conference will focus on green supply chain management developments. It will examine the central role ports and terminals can play in reducing the carbon intensity of the logistics chain and enhancing its sustainability.
The programme will include sessions on the key areas of dealing with the growing pressure for low carbon approaches by shippers, information provision to customers and suppliers, as well as simple methods of measurement, monitoring and improvement. It will also deal with how these components form part of an integrated carbon management strategy and how success in these areas is contingent on the establishment of collaboration amongst stakeholders.
