GreenPort Congress

14 – 15September 2011, Hamburg, Germany
GreenPort Congress

Governments and legislators around the world view ports and terminal as critical infrastructure assets. Their ability to ‘go green’ by reducing their carbon footprint and by being more sensitive to environmental considerations is vital to future success.

The GreenPort Congress will provide decision makers with a meeting place to both learn about and discuss the latest in sustainable environmental practice that will enable them to effectively implement these changes.

The emphasis of the Congress will be on highlighting innovation in equipment and technology whilst illustrating practical solutions through case studies.

This conference is taking place in Hamburg, his year’s European Green Capital. Hamburg has the third largest port in Europe and as a major industrial centre confronts all the environmental challenges that face other European cities. It is not an eco-paradise – yet! But its leaders are actively finding ways to combine industrial activity and the employment it generates with a good standard of living for inhabitants. This is what makes Hamburg a role model.  For more information on Hamburg click here
