Green Award in Riga

Recently, Green Award was represented at the Conference "City-Port in New Europe. Development & Forecast" in Riga, the capital and largest city of Latvia.

The Conference was organised by The Riga School of Management and Mr. Hans de Goeij was speaker on behalf of Green Award. It became quite clear that the Baltic States are also very much aware of the vulnerable situation in the Baltic Sea, especially with regard to the predicted increase of oil transport from the Russian Federation (Primorsk). Increased participation in the Green Award scheme in this area is considered as a positive option. The Port of Klaipeda has already joined the scheme two years ago and now neighbouring ports also realise the importance of better quality of (tanker)ships in their waters.
