Small Island Competition

Greenport Congress Oceania is excited to announce the opportunity for a small island port in the region to be sponsored to join the inaugural conference in Newcastle, Australia.  The conference, being held in the Newcastle Exhibition & Convention Centre (NEX), on February 15-17 2023, will build on the successful European Greenport Congress and Cruise, now in its 18th year. 

Greenport Congress Oceania will provide leaders from the port community - port authorities, terminal operators, shipping lines, logistics operators - with a meeting place to both learn about and discuss the latest in sustainable development and environmental practice.  Presentations and solutions shared during the two days, will enable delegates to plan and effectively implement the changes needed to reduce their carbon footprint and to be more sensitive to environmental considerations.

The lucky winner of this initiative, sponsored by Sustainable ESG, will be granted free attendance to the 2 day conference including all refreshments, welcome reception, conference dinner, full conference documentation and technical port tour, worth AUD 1995. On top of this, newly founded Sustainable ESG, spearheaded by Jackie Spiteri, is sponsoring a travel grant of AUD 1000 to the lucky winner towards flight and accommodation expenses.

Interested small island Ports should send a short 250 synopsis on project(s) they are involved that show innovation in environmental protection, be it Climate & Air, Energy & Fuels, Port & City or Town, Waste Management or Biodiversity, plus a short rationale for why they would like to join the conference to by 21 December 2022.   Entries may also be considered for inclusion on the programme as a presenter or to join a panel discussion, this is optional so please indicate in the submission if this would be of interest.
