Experts from the port of Oslo in Norway will share their top tips for improving operational sustainability and reducing the shipping industry’s carbon footprint when the port hosts GreenPort Cruise & Congress 2019 this October. 

The port of Oslo aims to reduce 85% of its carbon dioxide emissions by 2030 and by moving cargo from road to sea, will reduce air pollution and carbon emissions by at least 50%. In addition, the port is working on projects for emission free solutions such as shore power for ships. 

Experts will speak to delegates about how they can adapt these same tactics to improve the sustainability of their own ports. 

“As the European Capital of Environment in 2019, Oslo has taken on leadership in the green change, making it a great host for the GreenPort Cruise & Congress Conference,” said Marianne Rasmussen-Coulling, director of Events at Mercator Media, the organisers of the conference. “This year’s conference will welcome senior executives to the port, where they can see the great changes to the environment Oslo are achieving.”
