IAPH has joined the PIANC-led environment initiative “Think Climate” coalition as a partner to raise awareness about the challenges posed by climate change at a global level.
On Sunday December 6, Transport Day at the Paris COP21, the United Nations Paris Climate Conference 2015, the coalition formally launched its 2015 -2020 Action Plan, “Navigating a Changing Climate”. Prior to the launch on December 6, the partners across the world including IAPH issued a joint press release ‘New International Coalition of Navigation Infrastructure Associations urge Think Climate‘.
IAPH’s commitment to combating climate change is never new, as demonstrated by its environmental initiative “World Ports Climate Initiative” launched in 2008. Its major pillars are Environmental Ship Index (ESI), Onshore Power Supply and Carbon Footprinting.
