The GreenTech for Ports and Terminals Conference took place virtually on the 22nd & 23rd September 2021. It is the only large-scale green technology conference which caters to both ports and terminals, with a focus on collaboration.
The event offered two afternoons focused on green technology and one morning dedicated to green financing and investment.
Green Technology: the focus was on the most innovative and sustainable technologies, from large-scale electrified equipment to software solutions. The aim of the two half days was to inform decision makers within Port authorities and Terminals as to which technologies will be the most opportune in their journey to cutting emissions.
Green Financing: green projects and energy efficient practices require significant capital. To address this, the green finance dedicated morning brought together the different financial institutions involved with the process and discussed port expansion, infrastructure investments, risk profiles, green/sustainable financing and more.
The event dived into the tech, government regulation, practical sustainability projects and their funding, and how collaboration between ports, terminals and even shipping liners will be the silver bullet to dramatically reduce carbon emissions.
To meet and network with companies and individuals who can help to inform your sustainability journey.

The IMO target will require ports, terminals, and shipping liners to collaborate in ways that have previously been considered at odds within the competitive market in maritime.
Operations that are smart, efficient, innovative and look to reduce emissions seem to have more visibility in the context of energy transition and backed by government legislation.
Looking at how ports can finance mega investments that have a significant impact on the energy landscape and include renewable energy sources of production.
