PORTS PLAY A KEY ROLE IN DECARBONISATION
On the 23.-24. of May ESPO held its annual conference in Livorno, Italy.
A memorandum emphasizing “Priorities of European Ports for 2019-2024” has been published by ESPO and was presented at the conference in Livorno.
“The memorandum explains how ports can contribute to Europe’s competitiveness. It’s more than just a shopping list of what Europe needs to do or not for European ports.
European ports are the entry gates for trade, are at the crossroads of supply chains and are hotspots of energy, industry, innovation and digitalisation. We believe that European ports are a strategic partner in achieving Europe’s goals in terms of digitalisation and decarbonisation.” says ESPO’s secretary general Isabelle Ryckbost.
