Plans by the Port of Waterford in responding actively to climate change and emerging economic opportunities and challenges are among the key themes of the latest version of the port's corporate plan.
Along with commercial development, WatefordLive reports, also on the infrastructure, people and systems and environmental sustainability is one of five topics prioritised in the plan.
Describing climate change as “an enormous threat to the global environment with very significant implications for our economies and day-to-day lives,” the plan says it is incumbent on the Port to play a proactive role in reducing carbon emissions from transport.
In the plan, the Port commits to minimising their environmental impact and reducing their direct and indirect carbon footprint. It will also continue to support Ireland’s renewable energy sector and especially enable further investment in wind energy.
