  • Raúl Cascajo, head of PAV’s Environmental Policies, participated in the conference “Environmental sustainability: beyond waste collection, transport and treatment” organised by REDIT. In it, he explained the different innovative projects on decarbonisation that Valenciaport is developing

Valenciaport’s sustainable management and its environmental strategy will once again be on display at the International Environmental Solutions Fair . The ongoing projects and objectives of the ‘Valenciaport 2030: Zero Emissions’ strategy can be seen from 14 to 16 November at Feria València.

The Valenciaport stand has been designed with panels where the different actions that are being implemented to contribute to the protection of the environment and the fight against climate change are described. These initiatives are aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) established by the United Nations.

Initiatives that promote the circular economy, the sustainable management of natural resources, the reduction of polluting emissions, the promotion of the circular economy, the sustainable management of natural resources and the reduction of polluting emissions are some of the actions developed by Valenciaport to comply with its strategy and achieve the objective of becoming a 100% green port by 2030.

In addition, this space also exhibits the actions being carried out by the Valenciaport Foundation, and some companies and institutions working in the port sector such as Amarradores Valencia, APM Terminals, Baleària, Docks Logistic, Galp, InterSagunto Terminales, MSC Terminal Valencia, Noatum Terminal, Seroil Reciclamás, Servmar, Tepsa, Rubis, Transmed, Valencia Terminal Europa and Vareser.

Decarbonising logistics since 2008

Within the framework of the International Environmental Solutions Fair, the Port Authority of Valencia participated in the conference “Environmental sustainability: beyond waste collection, transport and treatment”. To this end, Raúl Cascajo, head of Environmental Policies at Valenciaport, took part in the first-round table of the day: “Decarbonisation, how can we achieve it?

“The State Ports Decarbonisation strategy announced this year reinforces and corroborates our line of work over the last two decades. In fact, we have been calculating our carbon footprint since 2008 and with that information we have been implementing actions and developing a strategy that has helped us to reduce emissions significantly despite the increase in activity.” “Examples of this are the electrification of docks, the generation of renewable energy or the use of alternative fuels to fossil fuels that are already a reality in Valenciaport”.

Cascajo also detailed Valenciaport’s participation in the Net-Zero Sea Alliance, a collaborative platform whose main objective is to promote the decarbonisation of the maritime-port sector in Spain by joining forces to reduce emissions. Federico Torres, head of Safety and Environment of the Port Authority of Valencia (PAV) is also vice-president of this association that brings together nearly 40 entities and companies seeking real solutions for the decarbonisation of maritime transport and port infrastructures. The aim of these conferences, promoted by REDIT (Network of Technological Institutes of the Valencian Community), is to raise awareness of the technologies and opportunities on the road to environmental sustainability. In them, leading experts will analyse the current situation and problems, as well as the funding programmes and technologies that exist to make this change possible.
