Port Environmental Management

31st January - 11th March 2022

Environmental sustainability in the port industry is of growing concern for port authorities, policy makers, port users and local communities. For sustainability to be achieved, environmental, social and economic aspects all need to be in balance.

The course on Port Environmental Management and Sustainability offers a specialised programme on the growing importance of environmental issues and applied technologies in a port. It highlights the main environmental challenges that ports face and demonstrates response options. It will encourage the participating ports and organisations in establishing and developing further their environmental management programmes and facilitate their journey towards responsible action, respecting the diversity of ports and their competences and abilities.


Why this course?

Environmental regulations and international standards trigger or even force port authorities and port users to be proactive and to commit to sustainable development and the continuous improvement of their environmental performance. Next to that, they also provide guidelines about the adoption of information systems able measure the effects of environmental sustainability choices and trigger the decision-making processes from a perspective of innovation. This programme gives port managers the opportunity to extensively discuss themes like sustainable development, environmental issues, energy transition, innovation, stakeholder management, etc.
