Ports are hubs connecting different types of transport systems at global and regional level. However, freight loading and unloading operations and passengers’ mobility have significant impact on the environment, especially on air quality, water and noise pollution as well as CO2 emissions. For this reason, ports can act as drivers for the implementation of more efficient and greener transport policies. In particular, ports can increase their sustainability by following a methodology that helps them in detecting their environmental impact and identify ways to reduce their carbon and ecological footprint.
The SUPAIR project engaged and supported 7 ports of the Adriatic-Ionian region in developing and promoting solutions for a sustainable and low-carbon management of their operations.
The Workshop is the chance to get an insight into the ports performances in terms of sustainability and learn more about the strategies they are adopting to reduce their impact on the environment.
The event is organized together with the XXIII edition of the ASITA Conference (Italian Federation of Scientific Associations for Territorial and Environmental Information) that will be held in Trieste on Nov. 12-14, 2019 at the Trieste Maritime Station. The SUPAIR Workshop will be moderated by Prof. Marco Mazzarino (IUAV).
