ASEAN KEY DESTINATIONS
Policy, practical implementation, discussion and networking – all rolled in to one!
The environment is a major priority for any commercial port and there is a strong link between effective environmental management and effective port management. Furthermore, for ports to ensure their future via port development and new investment, this has to be carried out with environmental protection to the forefront.
It is vital, therefore, for ports and terminals to keep abreast of the latest policies and the 2013 GreenPort Congress, which is hosted by the Port of Antwerp and supported by ESPO and EcoPorts amongst others, will include the following papers:
Thomas Verheye, European Commission, DG Environment will speak on 'The review of the EU Air Policy framework'.
Antoine Kedzierski, Transport & Environment will present on ‘The role of ports in enforcing environmental legislation’.
In addition, the following papers, given by the people who know, will also illustrate to delegates not only what has to be done to improve and conform but also, and most importantly, how:
Hendrik Hollstein, Hamburg Port Authority: Sulphur free fuel for port authority vessels
Sergey Perfilyev, Odessa Commercial Sea Port: Exemplifying the role of the port authority in relation to the management of waste and materials in port areas
Jacco Jentrop, Port of Moerdijk: Engaging in Industrial ecology
Resianne Dekker, Port of Rotterdam: Noise zoning in ports as a tool to encourage and also to enforce.
Helene Hasle, Port of Strasbourg: Rail freight: closer to your needs
Equally important though, at any event, are the networking opportunities and the GreenPort Congress offers delegates the chance to meet peers from across the global supply chain: delegate places include:
• Invitation to Welcome Reception, 8 October 2013, 1900-2100
• Two day technical conference with full documentation and refreshments, 9-10 October 2013
• Invitation to the Gala Dinner, 9 October 2013, 19.00
• Invitation to the Tour of Antwerp Port, 11 October 2013, 10.00-13.00
Following the themes of the ESPO Green Guide – Exemplify, Enable, Engage, Encourage and Enforce - each session will start with two plenary keynote speeches; an overview and a state of play presentation. The session will then breakdown into three working groups which will involve all sectors of the port community: port authorities, port users (terminal operators, logistics companies, shippers, shipping lines etc) and suppliers of equipment and services to the port community. The findings of each group will then be presented by the group moderators to the rest of the audience in a plenary session.
