Don’t miss the opportunity to represent your company on the GreenPort Cruise & Congress Piraeus 2021 programme. Call for papers closes next week!

GreenPort Cruise & Congress brings together the whole port community and is a platform for the exchange of information on the latest in sustainable environmental practice. In 2019 more than 180 high level decision makers attended, from companies and ports including DNV GL, Wärtsilä and Hamburg Port Authority. The event helps maritime ports and terminals to reduce their carbon footprints whilst becoming more sensitive to environmental considerations, which is vital to their future success! The 16th edition of the conference provides senior port professionals with a meeting place to discuss and share the latest in sustainable development and environmental practice within sea ports, terminals and their associated logistics supply chain.
