Business Vordingborg has a great focus on sustainability and growth possibilities induced by innovative thinking. For this reason we are a part of the EU-project Dual Ports. It is our responsibility to facilitate the collaboration between the partners involved and to communicate activities and results.
What is Dual Ports?
Dual Ports is a part of The North Sea Region Programme, which addresses 49 regions in seven countries surrounding the North Sea. The programme has its focus on bettering infrastructure and enhancing development of environmental solutions. Public institutions, organisations and businesses can apply for funding of projects relating to this.
The substance of the Dual Ports project
The purpose of the Dual Ports project is to increase the sustainability of commercial ports. The development of new technology to reduce emission of pollutants and finding more expedient ways of organising labour will increase efficiency and save energy, therefore increasing sustainability.
As part of the project businesses, research institutions and ports work together to find new tools and methods. Vordingborg participates with the commercial Port of Vordingborg.
The history of the Dual Ports project
As with any other type of business the functioning of ports entails some pollution.
Therefore, port authorities have to be concerned with reducing energy consumption. This way, they can contribute to realising national and European goals for Co2 reduction.
For many small and medium sized ports it can be a challenge to work with energy saving and reduction of pollution. It takes both economic and employment resources – resources they often do not have. With the Dual Ports project the ports have the opportunity to cater the challenge, because they are supplied with otherwise insufficient resources.
