In ports around the world, pressure is rising to ‘go green’ – whether that is transitioning to Net Zero Carbon and reducing emissions or in meeting the demands of the public and industry bodies alike in operating more efficiently and with greater sustainability.
This pressure has only increased during the Covid-19 pandemic, bringing a number of issues within the industry to the fore – and showing us how vital it is to build resilience into everything we do.
Over the next 30 years, the maritime industry – and in particular ports and shipping – will increasingly need to respond to international requirements to become more sustainable in their operations. Meeting these obligations whilst emerging from an economic downturn presents a significant challenge for the sector. Having smart and green solutions at the heart of port operations offers the opportunity to meet this challenge whilst delivering business continuity and economic efficiencies.
