With the vast majority of attendees either influencing or making decisions relating to implementation of environmental measures, the GreenPort Congress once again delivered a high calibre audience.

With this year’s host port, Port of Amsterdam, being known as the ‘Port of partnerships’, this year’s event will follow the theme of ‘Creating partnerships for sustainable development’ and has the aim of equipping all attendees with the knowledge to become leading sustainable ports and terminals of the world.

With a new interactive programme being designed for 2017, attendees at this year’s GreenPort events will benefit from the opportunity to network with other high calibre port professionals from around the world and to discuss topics such as the impact of the energy change, how to make and manage the change and what does the future hold – where will tomorrow’s energy come from.
