GreenPort Congress to Address Big-Picture Issues
The program for May’s inaugural GreenPort Congress America, to be held in Baltimore, is shaping up to include two days of work sessions followed by a morning of tours on land and water.
With the theme of “Green Ports are Smart Ports,” the Congress promises to take a long look
at what ports can do to adapt
to climate change, promote sustainability and work as partners to develop strategies for meeting the challenges facing ports.
There will be nine session topics, including improving water quality and reducing marine litter, regenerating contaminated industrial sites and building a sustainable supply chain. The keynote speaker will be announced later.
This first North American Conference will kick off with
a welcome reception on May 15, followed by full conference activities May 16 to 18 at the Baltimore Convention Center. The schedule also includes a gala dinner and a choice of tours.
Ports America Chesapeake is the Gold Sponsor, joining Maryland Department of Transportation’s Maryland Port Administration, the Maryland Department of the Environment and Tradepoint Atlantic in hosting the conference.
The up-to-date provisional program, registration information and details about hotel accommodations and group rates are available on the Congress website at www.greenport.com/ congressamerica. 􏰀
