Port environmental management and sustainability

Sustainable development for ports is globally high on the agenda. This course focuses on the existing obligations regarding sustainability for ports and guides you through the process of practical implementation to become compliant to the regulations. With Port of Antwerp as an example, we’ll show the possibilities how to become a front-runner in sustainable solutions which reduce the impact on the environment. The lectures will be presented by experts of the port of Antwerp, relevant authorities, academics, as well as terminal operators. The full course offers a balance between theory and practice.

The course guides you towards an understanding of the possibilities and added value of implementing eco-friendly solutions in operations and regulations. We will show you how to create a bridge to the Sustainable Development Goals without sacrificing the economic growth of your port.


  • An introduction and definition of SDG’s in ports
  • How to create awareness as a port authority
