Launch of ESPO's Environmental Report 2020 - 10 November, 11:30
Discover on 10 November at 11:30 am key insights into the environmental priorities of European ports.
An exclusive presentation of the 2020 Environmental Report will be provided by Valter Selén, Senior Policy Advisor and EcoPorts Coordinator who will kick off the session, followed by a short exchange of views between ESPO Secretary General Isabelle Ryckbost and special invited guests: Eamonn O’Reilly, ESPO Chairman and Chief Executive of the Port of Dublin; Daniel Mes, Member of Cabinet of European Commission Vice President Frans Timmermans; and Rosa Mari Darbra, Associate Professor at the Polytechnical University of Catalonia, and EcoPorts Coordinator. Closing the event, the GreenPort Cruise & Congress 2021 will hand over to the Port of Piraeus who will host next year’s meeting.
The 2020 Environmental Report details the environmental performance of European sea ports. It provides the answer to, amongst other things:
- How are ports improving their environmental performance over time?
- What are the priorities of European ports?
- How many European ports are currently providing onshore power supply and LNG infrastructure?
