This year’s GreenPort Congress programme contains many examples of working in partnership with stakeholders, combined with practical information on reducing emissions, footprint and sustainability recommendations. The programme is designed to be involving and interactive, so we urge delegates to register now and join in the conversation.
The 2017 hosts of the GreenPort Congress, the Port of Amsterdam, believe that the access that ports provide should strive to be better: faster, smarter and cleaner. Faster by investing in their processes and services. Smarter by embracing innovation. Cleaner by being a big port with a small footprint. The Port of Amsterdam also believes that nowadays issues are too complex to fix on their own and actively seeks dialogue and partnerships with their customers, civil society organisations, knowledge institutes and authorities to promote sustainable growth. This year’s programme reflects these beliefs and contains many examples of working in partnership with stakeholders,combined with practical information on reducing emissions, footprint and sustainability recommendations. The programme is designed to be involving and interactive, so to join in the conversation now.
- Port-City Integration - transition, change and feasibility
- Impact of the energy transition, How to create total value and work in partnerships to create responsible supply chains, work
- Working Groups on Challenges for ports and terminals – what does the future hold?
- Workshop explaining how terminal operators and port authorities can align their methods and responsibilities on carbon foot printing
Participants will find the programme packed with practical information on cost saving and emission reducing technologies.
In addition, a new initiative will be a ‘Public stakeholder meeting on port expansion and development’ in which key industry players, representing port authorities, terminal operator, NGOs, local community, CSR advisor and other stakeholders, will re-enact the statements, arguments and propositions based on the principles of stakeholder involvement and the ideals of sustainable development of a port. The participants will take on opposing roles to their current job function with the aim of giving delegates the opportunity to interact and gain experience of the decision-making process involved in the process. At the end of this 'public meeting', the Congress participants/local stakeholders will vote on the key issues and the outcomes will be discussed.
The full programme will be released later this week, for further information contact the Events team on +44 1329 825335 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
