Caroline Price, Director Green Ports at Royal HaskoningDHV, will discuss the opportunities offered through energy optimisation as part of a green port strategy at the virtual UK Ports Conference on Wednesday 25 November.
The UK Ports Conference is a yearly event, which brings together port operators, associations and both public and private institutions and agencies, to share knowledge and insight within the port industry. The main theme of this year’s event is ‘Delivering port growth and development: responding to trade, air quality and infrastructure challenges.’
Caroline will be talking on the third day of the event, about the challenges of achieving improvements in environmental performance within the context of a commercially operational maritime setting. Speaking about the event, she said: “I’m really looking forward to speaking at the UK Ports Conference this month – it’s a great opportunity to explore the future of the industry with fellow peers and professionals.
“Right now, ports are facing rising pressure to ‘go green’ – whether it’s transitioning to Net Zero Carbon and reducing emissions or finding ways to operate more efficiently and with greater sustainability. Developing green ports offers the opportunity to meet these challenges, without losing out on business continuity or even economic benefits. I’m looking forward to discussing the benefits energy optimization can deliver as part of our journey towards net zero in more detail at the conference.”
The UK Ports Conference 2020 takes places virtually between 23 – 26 November 2020.
