    World Ports Sustainability Program - The Next Phase

    In its fifth year, the IAPH World Ports Sustainability Program is now the industry reference database of ports integrating the UN Sustainable Development Goals into their own businesses. These projects have inspired the highly successful Port Endeavor game which brings those projects to life in a live, interactive way for participants and the IAPH Sustainability Awards are now established as the global standard for port project excellence. What are the next plans for the Program and what role can IAPH member ports and associate members serving them play in that future?
