BPA joins World Ports Sustainability Programme

BPA joins efforts to cut emissions

The British Ports Association (BPA) has joined the World Ports Sustainability Programme as a partner to join the global drive to improve the ports industry’s further integration of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals in their business and operations.

The World Ports Sustainability Program (WPSP) was founded in 2018 by the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH), of which the BPA is an associate member.

This the first major step the BPA is taking in a more sustained and coordinated effort to support UK ports in decarbonising their operations.

The program seeks to enhance and coordinate future sustainability efforts of ports worldwide and foster international cooperation with partners in the supply chain, covering climate and energy, resilience, community outreach, health safety and security, governance and ethics.

Commenting, Mark Simmonds, the BPA’s Director of Policy and External Affairs, said, “I am delighted that the BPA is joining the WPSP as a partner. Our members are extremely diverse in their size, business model, speciality and in terms of where they are on their sustainability ‘journey’.

“Some of our members are already engaged with the programme, but this will give more UK ports the opportunity to learn from and contribute to a growing global bank of knowledge, experience and expertise.”
