Case Studies


The influence of ports as key central nodes of local and territorial development is definitive. Moreover, Port Authorities, in their role of managers of Port Communities must lead the evolution of SMEs at ports towards new business and management models based on sustainability from the social, environmental and economical perspectives. In this manner, Mediterranean Port Authorities must promote initiatives aligned with the reduction of energy resources and the improvement of energy efficiency in order to surpass technological barriers at port-city areas. GREENBERTH aims to enhance these actions focused on the key processes involved at ports which include vessels and berth operations, which produce important impacts in the MED area regions.
