Ten Nordic ports want to go greener
Ten Nordic ports signed an agreement on environment and climate measures. These are the ports of Gothenburg, Stockholm and Helsingborg in Sweden, Malmö/Copenhagen, Aarhus and Esbjerg in Denmark, Oslo (Norway), Helsinki (Finland), Torshavn (Faroe Islands) and Faxaports on Iceland.
They have agreed to confer, discuss, cooperate and exchange information and best practices related to subjects focused on but not necessarily limited to environmental issues with a main focus on SDGs connected to energy use and alternative energy sources, pollution reduction technologies regarding emissions to air and water with a focus on both terminal operations and ships in port and sailing in our territorial waters and biodiversity and prevention of invasive species.
Furthermore, the ports are committed to share knowledge and insights on innovative ways to improve the ecosystem that can support the intended development on sustainable solutions, e.g. by connecting science, industry and start-ups. (fd)
