The guidance from PIANC's Technical Working Group 188 on Carbon Management for Port and Navigation Infrastructure was published in April 2019.  This publication investigates the carbon footprint of activities associated with the development, maintenance and operation of navigation channels and port infrastructure including the management of dredged material.  It provides an overview of a carbon management framework for navigation infrastructure; reviews existing initiatives on carbon emission quantification; describes best practices on opportunities for carbon emission reduction; and discusses some of the financial aspects related to carbon reduction measures.
