The international port community is taking up the challenge to help shape a truly sustainable supply chain for the future. It is within this context that 22 and 23 March 2018 will see the official launch of the World Ports Sustainability Program (WPSP) in the Port of Antwerp.

The program is based on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals drawn up by the United Nations. With WPSP, global ports aim to enhance and coordinate future sustainability efforts around five essential themes: future-proof infrastructure, climate and energy, societal integration of ports, safety and security as well as governance and ethics. The program is initiated by the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH) and developed in cooperation with regional and international port-related organizations.

During the exclusive event on Thursday 22 and Friday 23 March there will be panel discussions, interactive workshops and thought-provoking contributions by leading industry figures and policy-makers.

Join this historic launch along with senior colleagues of global ports, industry, stakeholders and policy-makers.

Registration to the event is by invitation only.
