Ports of Stockholm and the Port of Tallinn have signed an accord to promote environmental awareness in the Baltic Sea region.
The environmental agreement comprises tangible efforts in three areas. The two ports will jointly focus on the provision of future fuels, the management of ship-generated waste and the supply of electricity to vessels in port.
“We are proud and happy to present our joint collaboration with the Port of Tallinn,” says Johan Castwall, managing director of Ports of Stockholm.
“Environmental problems are cross-border issues and we are very much looking forward to working together with the Port of Tallinn on these matters.”
Ports of Stockholm has worked in an equivalent way with the Port of Helsinki since 2009 and Port of Turku since 2011. The Port of Tallinn has worked extensively together with the Port of Helsinki with several joint initiatives in several areas, including environmental cooperation projects.
“The Port of Tallinn has been consistently contributing to various environmental initiatives and such extended cooperation with one of the forerunners in the field of sustainable marine development presents us both great potential in working towards cleaner marine environment of the Baltic Sea,” says Ain Kaljurand, chairman of the management board of Port of Tallinn.
