The 2020 Environmental Report offers a snapshot of the state of environmental management in the port sector, and provides key insights and invaluable guidance for industry players, port professionals, and policymakers alike. The Report also serves to give an updated view on the latest trends and figures in environmental management and port good practices.

The 2020 Environmental Report details the environmental performance of European sea ports. It provides the answer to, amongst other things:

How are ports improving their environmental performance over time?
What are the priorities of European ports?
How many European ports are currently providing onshore power supply and LNG infrastructure?

The environmental report is an important tool of the ESPO Ecoports network, which is the flagship initiative of the European port sector. The Ecoports network is a unique initiative developed by ports, for ports seeking to self-monitor their environmental management and improvement over time.

The analysis provided in the 2020 Environmental Report is based on 60 benchmark indicators, using data from close to 100 ESPO EU/EEA member ports. All responses are independently assessed by academics and maritime experts.

Together with Greenport, ESPO gathers key individuals within the port and maritime sector to work jointly towards a better understanding of policy initiatives and their maritime implications.

Don’t miss this chance to get the first word on the environmental priorities of European ports as provided in the ESPO 2020 Environmental Report!

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open. is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
