IAPH reveals ‘magnificent seven’ of port sustainability

Patrick Verhoeven, managing director of the International Association of Ports and Harbours (IAPH), commented: “This year, 64 projects were submitted by 37 IAPH member ports from 21 countries, the highest ever number submissions since the Awards began.


“The quality of these submissions was also extremely high, leaving our international expert jury with a great deal of work to go over all the projects in detail and score on the parameters.


“We are also extremely satisfied with the response from the online voting public, who numbered 10.545 in total and whose 30% of the total points awarded did count when it came to calculating the winners.”

  • The Resilient Digital Infrastructure Award: MPA Singapore for its ‘Digital Port Ecosystem’.
  • The Resilient Physical Infrastructure Award: The Port of Kaohsiung for its ‘Master Plan 2017-2021’.
  • The Climate and Energy Award: The Port of Rotterdam for its ‘Zero Emission Services’.
