Environmental sustainability

The environmental focus is an essential element to guarantee the port-city fit and to ensure the type of future growth that the Port of Barcelona seeks. But also to contribute to modernisation and differentiation in an increasingly globalised world trade context.

    Goal: 2030-2050

    Accelerate decarbonisation

    In 2018, the Port joined the World Ports Climate Action Program (WPCAP) initiative, which aims to lay the foundations for accelerating the decarbonisation of port activity and maritime transport. In addition to the Port of Barcelona, the ports of Vancouver, Los Angeles, Long Beach, New York, Hamburg, Antwerp, Rotterdam and Gothenburg are also participating.

    Ports, the environment and the 2030 Agenda

    The port adheres to the United Nations Pact 2015-2030, which establishes 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) to be achieved by 2030.
