Sustainability as a permanent challenge
bremenports publishes its Sustainability Report 2020
This year, the port management company bremenports is publishing its seventh Sustainability Report. The Report, which is audited by TÜV Nord, provides a wide-ranging account of the company’s diverse activities in the sectors of governance, economic performance, the environment, labour practices and social responsibility. It has been prepared in line with the transparent, internationally comparable GRI standards.
Some of the special features of the comprehensive Sustainability Report:
- Professor Alexis Papathanassis [Rector of Bremerhaven University of Applied Sciences], Lutz Achilles [ornithologist], our trainees, and Nicole Wind, [principal of our partner school at Ernst-Reuter-Platz] present their personal contributions towards sustainability and describe in interviews how they imagine the ideal port in 2030.
- Our “Review of 10 years since the launch of greenports” sums up our successful strategy for becoming a sustainable port.
- We are making good progress with our efforts to change over our fleet of vehicles and ships to alternative drive systems. We explain how we are working towards our goal of achieving carbon-neutral infrastructure operation at the ports of Bremen by the year 2023.
- By now, almost every 2nd vessel that calls at Bremerhaven has an ESI score, which means the vessel is more eco-friendly than the legally prescribed standard. The chapter on Sustainable Marine Shipping provides information about the status quo in that sector.
- The chapter entitled “Commitment to local projects” explains how our project “The port comes to Lehe” promotes positive development in the Bremerhaven district of Lehe.
