  • ‘Study on the Capacity for Greening of European Sea Ports’ European Commission MOVE-OP-2020-000017-MOVE/D3/FV2020-779 (2021-2023) https://etendering.ted.europa.eu/cft/cft-display.html?cftId=7546The study will identify (a) the adverse environmental effects pertaining to ports, (b) the legislation and policies addressing them and which are not addressed and (c) the impediments for ports in pursuing green objectives. It will also present good practices from authorities in terms of policies and incentives aiding in attaining green objectives by ports as well as good practices from ports in pursuing economic development paired with green objectives. The study will also aid in knowledge sharing and identification of the tools in pursuing green objectives so that other ports can adjust and apply them to their own specificities.The study will encompass extensive desk research on legislation, policies, measures and practices on improving environmental factors and impediments in achieving so. It would also require communication and cooperation with Member States and industry associations as well as entity stakeholders for obtaining the feedback and proceed to analysis.
