The Port of Valencia (PAV) has announced that 42 private institutions voluntarily aligned themselves with the ‘Valenciaport 2030 Zero Emissions’ initiative.
This PAV-promoted project is made up of logistics/port enterprises who want to improve the environmental state of the ports of Valencia, Sagunto, and Gandia.
According to PAV, 42 enterprises working in Valencian port districts are now participating in this project and have voluntarily joined the initiative.
They reviewed the environmental objectives and analysed their involvement in the ‘Valenciaport 2030, Zero Emissions‘ strategy at the meeting to take stock of the first half of the year, reviewing the commitments acquired and which are additional to the Environmental Management System of each of them.
The companies that make up the Ecoport II Environmental Committee have described their participation in a total of nine free compliance environmental objectives.
These goals are: the increase in the percentage of recovered waste; 1 per cent reduction in water consumption; 1 per cent reduction in fuel consumption; 1 per cent reduction in electricity consumption; use of alternative energy sources; calculation of the carbon footprint; participation in environmental initiatives; identification
Similarly, an assessment of several of the PAV’s programmes to achieve a 100 per cent green port by 2030 was conducted.
In August 2023, PAV released data indicating a decline in its ports’ traffic volumes.
