The LOOP-Ports project awarded at the IAPH World Port Sustainability Awards 2020 - Institute of International Economics

The LOOP-Ports project awarded at the IAPH World Port Sustainability Awards 2020

LOOP-Ports, in which the Institute of International Economics is participating, has won the award in the "Climate and Energy" category

The European project, financed by EIT Climate-KIC and of whose consortium the Institute of International Economics of the UVEG is a member, has been awarded in the World Port Sustainability Awards 2020 of the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH) in the category of "Climate and Energy".

LOOP-Ports (https://www.loop-ports.eu/) is a project coordinated by the Valenciaport Foundation and financed by EIT Climate-KIC whose objective is to facilitate the transition to a more circular economy in the port sector through the creation of a Network of Ports in this area that will provide an ecosystem of innovation around port activity and stimulate the dissemination of circular economy initiatives. Currently a total of 44 entities from 14 countries, mainly Port Authorities and port associations at European level are part of this Port Network. https://sustainableworldports.org/project/port-of-valencia-the-loop-ports-project/

The project, which lasts 26 months, ends in December 2020. Loop-Ports involves 13 partners from 6 EU member states (Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Denmark and the Netherlands): Fundación Valenciaport (coordinator); EIT Climate-KIC S.L.; Climate-KIC S.r.l.Climate-KIC GmbH; Danmarks Tekniske Universitet (DTU); NTU International A/S; Nederlandse Organisatie voor Toegepast Natuurwetenschappelijk Onderzoek (TNO); Università di Bologna; Universität Hamburg; Universidad Politécnica de Madrid; Universitat de València; Eco Environnement Ingenièrie (2EI) and Veolia Innove.

The World Port Sustainability Awards were created to recognize the best projects registered in the IAPH's World Port Sustainability Programme (WPSP), a programme that was created in May 2017 with the aim of coordinating future sustainability efforts of ports worldwide and fostering international cooperation with supply chain partners, always guided by the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The award ceremony, initially scheduled to take place in March in Antwerp, within the framework of the IAPH World Ports Conference 2020, and later cancelled due to COVID-19, was finally held on June 24 virtually, through a webinar attended by IAPH Director General Patrick Verhoeven and representatives of the awarded entities. Federico Torres, Director of Safety, Environment and Facilities of the APV, received the award for the LOOP-Ports project on behalf of the project consortium. Torres highlighted the great relevance that this award has for the ports participating in the project because "it means the recognition of the work carried out in relation to the promotion of the circular economy as a future strategy in the ports".
