Piraeus, Greece (PortSEurope) May 15, 2018 – COSCO-owned Piraeus Port Authority S.A. (PPA) is looking to reduce carbon emissions from its facilities in order to reduce its carbon footprint.
Its efforts are part of the Sustainable Ports in the Adriatic-Ionian Region (SUPAIR) project co-financed by the Adriatic-Ionian Programme INTERREG.
The objective is to enhance capacity for integrated transport and mobility services and multimodality in the Adriatic-Ionian area. Ports are core nodes for multimodal transport in the Adriatic-Ionian basin and strategic key drivers for economic growth: reducing negative environmental impacts is essential for a sustainable development of the area.
SUPAIR tackles reduction of emissions from shipping and on-shore port operations with an integrated approach, enhancing port authorities’ capacity to plan and implement low-carbon and multimodal transport and mobility solutions and further empowering the main political, technical, trade stakeholders and partners in related decision-making.
Trieste leads the project and the partners are: Venice International University, Port Authorities of Trieste and Venezia (Italy), namely: Port Network Authority of the Eastern Adriatic Sea and North Adriatic Sea Port Authority; Centre for Research and Technologies of Hellas (CERTH), Port Authorities of Pireus and Thessaloniki (Greece); Logistics Port System of Capodistria, Luka Koper (Slovenia); Port Authority of Durres (Albania); Port Authority of Bar (Crna Gora_Montenegro).
PPA is operated by China’s COSCO Shipping Ports Limited.
