This is the final call for submissions for the 17th Edition of the Green Port Cruise & Congress on 18-20 October 2022, hosted by Port of Zeebrugge.

The GreenPort Congress brings together the whole port community and is a platform for the exchange of information on the latest in sustainable environmental practice. Running the conference for the first time to a hybrid audience in 2021 we welcomed attendees from 26 counties in Europe, North America, Asia and Oceania. The event helps maritime ports and terminals to reduce their carbon foot prints whilst becoming more sensitive to environmental considerations, which is vital to their future success.
