Reducing greenhouse emissions of ports not only address global warming climate but also to promote innovation, implement energy efficiency and improving the quality of life in their surrounding areas. CLIMEPORT proposes the assessment of different methodologies in order to combat the global climate change. The project takes place in several countries of the Mediterranean area involving a group of the largest ports committed to tackling climate change. Thus, the cooperation among Mediterranean ports becomes a vital key of the logistic chain which is essential for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
The project aims to develop and implement solutions in order to improve the general climate conditions by means of actions in maritime and inland transport, energy saving and efficiency, implementing the world port climate declarations, designing an environmental indicators system as footprint according to CO2 levels, ...,etc. For these reasons, CLIMEPORT set several actions and initiatives to develop a diagnosis of the port influence in the climate change and the actions plans for reducing the port activities' impact in the environment.
