Port of Gothenburg Sustainability Report for 2016 now available
The Port of Gothenburg took several important steps during 2016 in its pursuit of long-term sustainability. This is revealed in the Port of Gothenburg Sustainability Report for 2016.
2016 proved to be an eventful year for the Port of Gothenburg. The new logistics park continued to expand, the importance of deepening the fairways was highlighted, and headway was made in the development of new terminals. “Sustainable Port”, the Gothenburg Port Authority Sustainability Report for 2016, is due to be published today. The report sets out the port’s sustainability initiatives and the challenges it is facing, both now and in the future.
Aiming for better business and reducing social exclusion
Initiatives in 2016 included a greater focus on new marine fuels, and a Port Tariff that remained unchanged to help promote better business for our customers. There were also several examples of how we are contributing, together with our partners, to reducing social exclusion.
Magnus Kårestedt, Port of Gothenburg Chief Executive, said: “We are seeking to create long-term conditions that will allow our customers and partners to grow with us. This is taking place, and indeed must take place, based on economic, environmental and social sustainability, which are the three core dimensions.”
UN Susainable Development Goals
This is the fifth year in succession that Gothenburg Port Authority has published a sustainability report. It will be the second year in which the report has followed the G4 International Sustainability Reporting Guidelines published by the standards organisation Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). The guidelines make it easier to compare sustainability development at the port with other organisations. A new addition in this year’s report is the incorporation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
