"One of the strategic axes of the Port of Barcelona is to guarantee its sustainable growth, in line with the Global Compact and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, to which it is firmly committed. This implies enhancing the contribution that infrastructure makes to society in terms of economic, social and environmental value."

Strategic orientation

The Plan began in 2015 to respond to the objectives of the 3rd Strategic Plan of the Port of Barcelona. It allows the organisations of the Port Community to advance towards sustainable development bearing in mind the expectations of the stakeholders. This orientation towards sustainability becomes the central axis of the 4th Strategic Plan (2021-2025).

Through an exhaustive survey, the Sectoral Sustainability Plan collected the status of the member organisations through a series of indicators.


Global challenges

The Port focuses not only on the challenges posed by the country and the city, but also by the world. That is why it adheres to the United Nations Global Compact 2015-2030 and aligns its actions with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are also pursued by the organisations of the Plan.

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Development of economic, social and environmental value

The organisations that adhere to the Positive Impact Port align with various SDGs.
