We are pleased to announce the upcoming launch of the first Green Inland Ports Study Workshop!
The workshop is part of the European Commission’s commitment to support European inland ports in their journey towards becoming zero-emission, sustainable hubs that connect and serve Europe.
The Green Inland Ports study, which was initiated in January 2023, aims to assess and mitigate the environmental impact of ports on their surroundings. Additionally, it explores the role of digitalization in making ports more sustainable and identifies opportunities for implementing inland waterway transport for urban mobility and short-distance transport.
To ensure the success of this study, the involvement of stakeholders is crucial. That is why, a series of workshops will be organized, with the forthcoming session representing the first instalment.
This workshop, held in cooperation with the European Federation of Inland Ports (EFIP) General Assembly, will predominantly focus on two key areas:
- Different ways in which the environmental impact of ports can be effectively quantified;
- The utilization of digital tools in the context of inland ports.
This workshop represents a fantastic opportunity for stakeholders to actively participate in shaping the future of European inland ports, as they pave the way towards a more sustainable and environmentally friendly transport network. Don’t miss out on this chance to contribute to a greener Europe!
Save the date in your calendars, and we hope to see you there!
Who should attend this workshop?
Inland ports, terminal operators, IWT companies, and authorities are all encouraged to participate in order to contribute their expertise and insights to the study.
