With plenty of engaged people and companies, the event hosted in Port of Antwerp-Bruges has been a powerful opportunity to set the basis of the continuous dialogue among the PIONEERS Stakeholders Community for the upcoming years, focusing on the acceleration of the transition to climate neutrality for EU ports.
With plenary sessions, interactive breakouts, round tables and inspiring speeches, PIONEERS confirmed the ambition to make green ports the norm for our sustainable future.
The project has been up and running for one year now, and the celebration at the “Shaping the Green Port of the Future” International Conference was the perfect opportunity to bring together ports, policymakers, industry players, academics, and technology providers to engage them in an intense and open discussion about how to make the process of transition to the envisioned desired sustainable future a reality, planning the change process.
The following two years are about implementing the 19 demonstrators in the four ports (Antwerp-Bruges, Barcelona, Constanta, Venlo). After that, the focus shifts to transferring technological and non-technological best practices to other ports and EU ports. This knowledge will also feed the Green Port Master Plan, a strategy for greening all European ports by 2026.
