Nordic Ports for a Sustainable Future

PRESS RELEASE 
Copenhagen 12 November 2019

Ten ports in the Nordic Region have agreed upon a declaration focusing on sustainable port management. The joint declaration shows a regional commitment to collaborate on environmental challenges related to UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

Ports are the connecting nodes of the world economy and global trade and play a vital role in creating a sustainable future in line with the Paris Agreement and UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Therefore, a wide range of Nordic ports have put forward a declaration emphasising the importance of sharing knowledge, information and best practices on different environmental topics such as energy use and pollution to optimize sustainable port management. 

“Sustainable development is a considerable challenge – but also a development which holds great potential and opportunities. Responsible business demands innovative ways of thinking and new ways of working. In order to accelerate solutions on sustainable matters, we need to create strong partnerships. This declaration signals a strong commitment among some of the largest ports in the Nordic Region to act collectively”, says Barbara Scheel Agersnap, CEO at Copenhagen Malmö Port AB. 

Attached please find the declaration signed by the ten ports.
