IAPH Mission Statement:

Promoting the interest of ports worldwide through strong member relationships, collaboration and information-sharing that help resolve common issues, advance sustainable practices and continually improve how ports serve the maritime industries.

IAPH is a long-standing supporter of GreenPort Cruise & Congress and frequently features on the conference programme.

2021 welcomed a new hybrid format for the conference in which we welcomed high level decision makers from port authorities, terminal operators, shipping lines, logistics operators and key cruise and commercial operators from 26 counties in Europe, North America, Asia and Oceania. 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.
