Event: Sustainability Tour of Shoreham Port, Southwick

Part of the Utilise Plus events and grant funding programme.

13th February 2019, 09:30 to 12:30, Shoreham Port, Southwick.

Join us for a Sustainability Tour of Shoreham Port, in Southwick. Working to the code of practice of the European Sea Ports Organisation (ESPO) and Port Environmental Review System, they focus on 12 key areas to reduce their impact on the environment. From energy use and CO2 emissions, to air quality and noise pollution, Shoreham Port puts sustainability at the heart of its day-to-day operations.

Delegates will hear about the Port’s approach to sustainability with a Q&A session and then see their various energy-saving technologies in action, including their extensive solar panels, wind turbines, and newly-installed equipment in their pump house. The tour will cover the entire Port, with sustainable transport provided by The Big Lemon. What’s more, there’ll be plenty of time to network with other like-minded organisations over light refreshments.

This event is part of the Utilise Plus programme and is fully-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). As such, only those from eligible organisations can attend.
