The Worldwide Network of Port Cities (AIVP) has gained a new member following last year’s move by members to sign the 10 sustainable commitments that make up its Agenda 2030.
Spain’s Port Authority of Ceuta recently confirmed its membership and commitment to Agenda 2030, which aims to implement major environmental changes to achieve sustainability in port cities by 2030 and encompasses 10 commitments aligned to the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The Port Authority of Ceuta has adopted, as a management model, a wider concept of sustainable development.
At present, the Port Authority of Ceuta has carried out some actions aligned with the AIVP Agenda 2030 objectives and plans to be part of the axis of different projects planned in the short and medium term. Some examples are the following:
Adaptation to climate change, health and quality of life: signing of an agreement with the Autonomous City of Ceuta for the improvement of air quality, entry into force of a regulation for the reduction of hydrogen sulfide emissions from port operations.
Energy transition and Sustainable mobility: Acquisition and installation of LED technology, acquisition of electric vehicles and efficient air conditioning systems at the Maritime Station.
Port-city interface: An enclosure project at the Port of Ceuta that will serve to reinforce the security of the port facilities and investments to improve the accessibility of the Maritime Station.
Protection of biodiversity: Studies on water quality based on ROM-5.1-13, recommendation on the quality of coastal waters in port areas: physicochemical and biological indicators.Source of Information: GreenPort.
