SUSPORT project activities have begun with the analysis of the environmental sustainability and energy efficiency of Adriatic ports. The main objective is to assess the current performance of Adriatic ports in order to gauge the impact of the measures that will be implemented by the port authorities in the next phases of the project. In this context, VIU elaborated the common methodology to carry out the territorial needs assessment, with particular attention to the evaluation of the carbon footprint related to onshore and maritime operations in the port areas.
According to the common methodology, each port will prepare a document including the peculiarities of each port area, the mapping of stakeholders, the current carbon footprint, and a SWOT analysis to deliver the factors involved in reaching the main project goals. VIU also coordinates the collection of best practices to improve port sustainability and energy efficiency. All the project partners are contributing to this task, which will provide a solid base for the next steps of the SUSPORT project.
Sustainable Ports is a research project funded by the Interreg Italy-Croatia Program. The project will improve the safety and environmental sustainability of marine and coastal transport services and nodes by promoting multimodality.
SUSPORT aims at strengthening the institutional capacity and cross-border governance of the ports of the Programme Area in this sector, enhancing environmental sustainability and energy efficiency.
