Environmental Working Group
The BPO Environmental Group consists of nine members representing the following ports: Copenhagen Malmö, Stockholm, Tallinn, Helsinki, Turku, Rostock, Gdańsk, Liepāja and Kaliningrad. The main task of the EWG is to follow regulatory developments that affect the port business, especially those related to HELCOM’s activities. Among the many topics are: SOx and NOx emissions, port reception facilities for sewage from passenger ships, which is a concern for many of the Baltic ports as it is associated with substantial costs as well as proper waste management in ports.
The Helsinki Commission is planning to introduce new rules when it comes to delivering sewage from passenger ships starting from 2016. BPO has the status of an observer in the Helsinki Commission, giving statements on port-related issues.
If you are a BPO member and wish to join the Group, please contact the BPO Office.
