About this event
Presented by Mott MacDonald and Envision Digital in partnership with Port Technology International.
This FREE webinar will explore the role of ports in creating a green/net-zero logistics chain, examining drivers, challenges and enablers. We’ll be showcasing an operator using digital technologies to guide operational efficiencies and plan investments in renewable energy, energy storage, fleet electrification, and low-carbon capital projects.
Success for ports the world over is being shaped by the green agenda, and in particular the drive towards net-zero carbon. Consumers want it. Investors are demanding it. Policy and regulation are increasingly geared to achieving it.
Port owners and operators that can cut energy use and carbon emissions are gaining competitive and regulatory advantage, strengthening their social license to operate, attracting capital and green industries of the future, as well as protecting themselves against spiking energy costs.
Join us to find out how.
This webinar will be 90 minutes long with a 70-minute speaker presentation followed by a 20-minute Q&A.
The webinar will be available to watch On-Demand for those that are unable to attend the live event.
