The World Resources Forum 2019 puts its focus on closing resource loops and circular economy in practice, as a lever to achieve the Agenda 2030 commitments. The challenge we face of a low carbon and circular society is well known. With a view to the post-2020 era, WRF2019 takes stock of solutions and practices taking place in many parts of society to move from a linear and fossil to a circular and low carbon economy. Where are the opportunities, what works, what does not, and why? Thematic ‘Global Sessions’, with inspiring voices from leading experts will set the scene on key topics among which the role of ports is addressed.
Ports are truly fascinating places where economic activity, logistics and services come together. Their century-old role in fostering welfare and trade now enters a completely new era, defined by climate change and the need for sustainable added value alongside new forms of logistics. It is no longer merely about the expansion of central hubs for global trade flows, ports are looking for new approaches vis-à-vis their hinterland, industrial clusters and their spatial conception. This new context, emerging from climate policies and the growing number of initiatives to close material loops, triggers a reflection on the future role of ports.

Carbon emissions from freight transportation are on the rise, but it doesn’t have to be that way. We are dedicated to taking control of logistics emissions, and we believe that calculating and reporting carbon emissions is the first step in reducing them. That’s why we'd like to invite you to a live webinar featuring industry experts on 9 July at 3:00 pm CEST: How to calculate, report and reduce logistics emissions using the updated GLEC Framework.
