Two-day sustainability congress on 22 and 23 March 2018 to be organised under the aegis of IAPH (International Association of Ports and Harbors), together with AAPA (American Association of Port Authorities), ESPO (European Sea Ports Organisation), AIVP (International Association of Cities and Ports) and PIANC (World Association for Waterborne Transport Infrastructure) by the Port of Antwerp in cooperation with IAPH. The aim is to transform and expand the existing World Ports Climate Initiative (WPCI) so that ports around the world can contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Convention. The international event focuses primarily on the integration of the 17 SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) within the port/maritime sector.

 

 

Patrick Verhoeven, Director IAPH

“Ten years after the World Ports Climate Initiative, we are broadening the scope of climate change to include corporate social responsibility. World ports are being challenged to reconcile sustainable development with further industrial challenges. That is why we believe it is necessary to make the WPCI become the WPSP: the World Ports Sustainability Program, a programme that aims to make an important contribution to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.”

Eric de Deckere, Technical Manager Sustainable Transition, Port of Antwerp

“Finally, the Port of Antwerp Authority takes an active role in making the maritime/port interface more sustainable. It is in this context that the World Ports Sustainability Program will be launched in Antwerp on 22 and 23 March, with the global port sectors committing themselves to making an active contribution to the UN-SDGs. The Antwerp port community is pursuing an active policy and there are many inspiring examples to be found within our platform. Together with all actors in the port, the Antwerp Port Authority wants to to create sustainable added value and reconcile economic, social and ecological interests. We aim to play a pioneering role in the Hamburg-Le Havre range by taking a leading role in sustainability.”
