Ports Australia publishes new Sustainability Strategy Development Guide

Posted by

NavClimate supporter Ports Australia’s has published a new Port Sustainability Strategy Development Guide with the intention to provide a strategic and robust approach to sustainability planning for ports.

The plan is adaptable for ports to tackle the challenges unique to the environment and communities they directly interact with, but the approach also provides a framework to address common and constantly evolving challenges like climate change.

Reducing CO2 emissions and encouraging clean energy transitions are just some examples of goals that ports can set in their sustainability planning. This will contribute to what must be a consolidated effort amongst ports against the everchanging climate which will inevitably affect their future operations.

The guide can be downloaded from the Ports Australia website https://www.portsaustralia.com.au/value-of-ports/sustainability
