Calculating emissions for ports
As the maritime industry moves slowly but decisively towards sustainability, ports and terminals occupy a uniquely influential position. They certainly face significant challenges, of course, how to decarbonise operations while enhancing operational efficiency and competitiveness, which is no small task. But they also have the opportunity to be a catalyst for broader change in the maritime industry, influencing shipping partners through targeted collaborations and initiatives like incentive schemes for visiting ships.
Volunteering can be defined as spending unpaid time to do something that benefits communities, the environment and charitable causes. Employer Supported Volunteering (ESV) can be attributed to companies that actively support and encourage their employees to take part in voluntary activities within their local communities, often during working hours. This allows organisations to have an impact across the communities in which they operate, with many employers introducing volunteering programmes as part of HR policies for employees, to support community organisations and charities with their time and skills. Volunteering activities may be physical activities, in-person skills-based opportunities, or can even be undertaken virtually for many charities.
