Call for ports to share sustainability projects

The IAPH is calling for its members to share data on sustainability initiatives

The International Association of Ports and Harbours (IAPH) is asking its member ports to get behind World Ports Sustainability Program (WPSP). Created in 2017, the WPSP initiative was officially launched in March 2018 at the Port of Antwerp.

 

The WPSP aims to demonstrate global leadership of ports in contributing to the sustainable development goals of the United Nations. “One of the main aims of WPSP is to maintain a coherent and up-to-date global database of port projects on sustainable development. For this to work we are counting on your contribution and enthusiasm,” the IAPH stated.

 

“By sharing your port’s projects with WPSP you can raise awareness about your ongoing work on sustainability, share your experiences with peers and inspire more ports worldwide to follow”.

 

The WPSP focuses on five key areas:

  • resilient Infrastructure
  • climate and energy
  • community outreach and port-city dialogue
  • safety and security
  • governance and ethics

Patrick Verhoeven, IAPH Managing Director - Policy and Strategy, invites members to review the current content of the WPSP website and use the online form to submit details of their own projects.


Antonis Michail at WPSP is available to answer any questions related to port submissions and the website.
