“This declaration signals a strong commitment among some of the largest ports in the Nordic region to act collectively.”

According to Copenhagen Malmö Port, ports serve as the connecting nodes of the economy across the world and global trade. They also play a significant role in creating a sustainable future in line with the Paris Agreement and the UN’s SDGs.

In their declaration, the Nordic ports emphasised the importance of sharing knowledge, information and best practices on different environmental topics such as energy use and pollution for optimising port management.

They intend to cooperate and exchange information related to environmental issues with the main focus on SDGs.
