CLEAN BERTH

Cross-border institutional cooperation for ports environmental sustainability and energy efficiency

Overall Objective of the Project: 

The main objective of CLEAN BERTH was to strengthen the institutional capacity of the ports in the Program Area towards a coordinated and permanent governance in the field of environmental sustainability and port energy efficiency at cross-border level, through developing joint action plans and long-term strategy, by increasing coordination and cooperation among ports to strengthen their sustainability and competitiveness.

Project summary: 

The CLEAN BERTH - Cross-border institutional cooperation for ports environmental sustainability and energy efficiency - project ended on 31st August 2022.

At the beginning of the project in 2020 the ports of the Programme area did not have a common model for environmental planning and energy efficiency  and adopted non-coordinated mitigation measures with an uneven result in terms of environmental protection. The intention of CLEAN BERTH was therefore to strengthen institutional capacity and cross-border governance of the ports of the Program Area. The aim was to improve their environmental and energy performance. In particular, a model of cross-border plan for environmental sustainability and port energy efficiency was developed and declined through an ad hoc plan for each port (WP3.1) tested in concrete pilot actions, with tangible results (WP3.2). On the basis of what learned in WP3.1 and WP3.2, the ports of the Program Area signed a Protocol for a joint cross-border cooperation strategy and harmonisation of policies in the medium and long term (WP3.3). This will benefit neighbouring citizens and those living in the municipalities where commercial airports are located. No project so far has ever brought together all ports of the Programme Area for a joint cross-border strategy.

Main results: 

The main result that CLEAN BERTH aimed for was the improvement of the collaboration and institutional capacity of the ports of the Program Area in the key theme of environmental sustainability and port energy efficiency, through joint action plans and strategies developed jointly, in a perspective long-term cooperation. CLEAN BERTH aimed to achieve the following specific results: 1) Improvement of port skills in joint planning for environmental sustainability and port energy efficiency, as basis for a long-term change. In particular, a fruitful exchange of experiences and a benchmark analysis provided the staff of all the ports of the Area with a solid knowledge to improve their planning skills; 2) Harmonization of policies and actions to strengthen crossborder environmental sustainability and port energy efficiency. The drafting of a common model of environmental sustainability and energy efficiency plan and its declination for each port as well as its experimentation through concrete pilot actions, created the basis for standardization of environmental protection measures, consolidating sustainability and competitiveness of the ports of the Programme Area. 3) Institutionalization of a cross-border governance of environmental sustainability and energy efficiency. Thanks to the creation of a permanent cross-border institutional platform through the signing of a joint protocol, all ports in the Programme Area undertook to apply a common strategy on environmental sustainability and energy efficiency in a long-term perspective beyond the end of the project.

Objectives and Activities

KEY PROJECT OBJECTIVES

The main objective of CLEAN BERTH was to strengthen the institutional capacity of the ports in the Program Area towards a coordinated and permanent governance in the field of environmental sustainability and port energy efficiency at cross-border level, through developing joint action plans and long-term strategy, by increasing coordination and cooperation among ports to strengthen their sustainability and competitiveness.

 

CURRENT STATUS OF IMPLEMENTATION

The Project started on 01.03.2020 and ended on 31.08.2022. The project partners contributed to the analysis of the current state of the ports in the program area. As a first activity, inventories of GHG emissions were prepared: an important tool for also comparing the quantities of emissions between terminals or ports, consequently identifying the critical issues, adopting the most effective decisions on priority investments and introducing the technological changes useful to reduce them. Based on the calculation of the carbon footprint for each port, the identification and analysis of best practices in terms of environmental sustainability and energy efficiency were then made. The consolidated report on the current situation allowed each port to develop individual environmental sustainability and energy efficiency plans, which were then grouped into a single cross-border action plan for the strengthening of environmental sustainability and port energy efficiency. The goal is to achieve the progressive reduction of emission factors in the port area. In fact, the joint cross-border action plan identifies the strategies and activities that over the next decade will help ports reduce their environmental impact and strengthen energy efficiency. The interventions concern different areas of port activities, ranging from emissions generated by the administrative management of the port to emissions generated by the operation of the port along the entire port logistics chain.

The next step was the preparation of a 'Cross-border strategy for enhancing environmental sustainability and port energy efficiency' to identify the main challenges in the maritime sector and the general and operational guidelines to jointly and synergistically pursue environmental sustainability objectives.

The importance of cross-border cooperation was also emphasised at the final conference entitled "Green and Smart Ports in the Adriatic-Ionian Region. The contribution of the European territorial cooperation between Italy, Croatia and Slovenia" organised on 8th June 2022 in Trieste by the LP in cooperation with the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region, under the auspices of the European Macro-Strategy for the Adriatic-Ionian Region (EUSAIR) and in collaboration with other projects co-funded by the Interreg Italy-Croatia Programme 2014-2020.

At the end of the meeting the CLEAN BERTH project partners signed the "Joint Protocol for permanent cross-border cooperation on environmental sustainability and port energy efficiency", aimed at further strengthening the fruitful cooperation established during the project implementation. The main areas of action will be the exchange of best practices, joint training and awareness-raising initiatives and joint participation in co-financed projects to promote cross-border cooperation in the field of environmental sustainability and energy efficiency. In the coming years, the focus will be on finding new solutions in the field of alternative energy sources for use in port logistics.
