Royal HaskoningDHV has developed a pioneering tool to help ports think more strategically about their sustainability.

‘Quick Scan’ is a web based programme that draws on data from a number of environmental aspects around a port to provide a holistic, at a glance picture, of the port’s sustainability.

‘Quick Scan’ helps to structure communication about environmental aspects by guiding the user through a series of short questions. Together we arrive at an instant sustainability review that shows potential environmental risks that the port might face, as well as highlighting where priorities for environmental investment lie. If necessary, a more detailed assessment can be provided.
