The European Sea Ports Organisation is the principal interface between European seaports and the European institutions and its policy makers. They will once again be supporting GreenPort Congress & Cruise.

Based in Brussels, the European Sea Ports Organisation (ESPO) ensures that seaports have a clear voice in the European Union. ESPO represents the common interests and promotes the common views and values of its members to the European institutions and its policy makers.

ESPO membership consists of port authorities, port administrations and port associations of the seaports of the European Union and Norway. The organisation is furthermore open to observer members from countries neighbouring the EU (Albania, Iceland, Israel, Montenegro, Ukraine and United Kingdom).

EcoPorts was initiated by a number of proactive ports in 1997 and has been fully integrated into the European Sea Ports Organisation (ESPO) since 2011. The overarching principle of EcoPorts is to raise awareness on environmental protection through cooperation and sharing of knowledge between ports and improve environmental management. EcoPorts is represented in 25 countries with a total of 102 members.
