The Port of Gothenburg has joined collaboration with ten other Nordic ports. In a signed declaration, the ports have agreed to cooperate, exchange information and share approaches in a number of areas relating to the environment and climate. The ports that signed the declaration are the ports in Gothenburg, Stockholm, Helsingborg, Malmo/ Copenhagen, Aarhus, Esbjerg, Oslo, Helsinki, Torshavn and Faxaports on Iceland.

The Port of Gothenburg is actively participating in several collaborations to both share and acquire new knowledge about how ports can best work with climate and environmental issues. By connecting land and sea and by being connecting nodes of global trade and world economy ports play a vital role in contributing to e.g. UN’s Global Sustainability Goals and creating a sustainable future in line with the Paris Agreement. Therefore, the Nordic Ports intend to confer, discuss, cooperate and exchange information and best practices related to subjects focused on but not necessarily limited to environmental issues with a main focus on SDGs connected to:
Energy Use and Alternative Energy Sources
Pollution Reduction Technologies regarding emissions to air and water with a focus on both terminal operations and ships in port and sailing in our territorial waters
Biodiversity and prevention of invasive species

Furthermore, the Ports are committed to share knowledge and insights on innovative ways to improve the ecosystem that can support the intended development on sustainable solutions, e.g. by connecting science, industry and start-ups

The declaration acknowledges that each port will prioritize each SDG differently based on environmental, social and economic realities.
