New Climate Challenge from #NavClimate supporter EFIP

Posted by

An exciting announcement from #NavClimate supporter EFIP: a Challenge to gather ideas on how European inland ports, in their role as multimodal transport hubs, can contribute to achieve the European climate targets.

According to the thinkport VIENNA website, "Europe has set ambitious transport, environmental and climate targets for 2030 and 2050 (climate targets 2030, climate targets 2050). European inland ports, due to their role as multimodal transport hubs as well as their proximity to metropolitan areas, are of crucial importance when considering strategies and approaches to achieve climate targets in the coming years. Globalisation, changing consumer behaviour and urbanisation are leading to a steady increase in traffic, freight transport and emissions in European cities. These developments call for new solutions and rapid action in order to actively meet the challenges arising from them. The political measures and initiatives to achieve these goals will be the focus of attention of all actors in the coming years. Issues related to sustainable development of European inland ports and to actively contributing to the achievement of climate targets are at the forefront of the EFIP (European Federation of Inland Ports)".
