Some quiet in ports: noise reduction initiatives

Port activities are often loud. To diminish noise pollution, Puerto Valparaiso (Chile) are introducing a campaign called “Avoid Honking”, which aims to raise awareness about using the horn around communities. The Port Authority of Rotterdam (the Netherlands) is giving a financial discount to moored vessels who release an ESI noise report with levels based on internationally accepted standards. In the New York Bight (USA), the acoustic monitoring of an offshore wind project will extend to 2028 to see the whale activity in its vicinity. These incentives aim to develop ports in harmony with their environments.

Quebec’s port cities mobilise to clean up the banks of the Saint Lawrence 

On 17 September, over 1,800 kg of waste was collected from the banks of the island of Montreal, Laval and Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu. Launched at the initiative of the environmental association Mission 1000 tonnes, the challenge was aimed at raising awareness among the population and public sector decision-makers about pollution on the banks of the Saint Lawrence. Also, the local authorities concerned are set to redouble their waste management efforts. From 28 March 2023, restaurants in Montreal will no longer be able to sell items in single-use plastic packaging.

Maritime culture in the spotlight for the 2022 World Heritage Days

To celebrate their history, several administrative authorities and port cities have begun efforts to showcase their maritime heritage. To mark its 75th anniversary, the Port of Olympia (USA) has published a book looking at how it has developed since it was founded, and its role in the development of the Puget Sound region. In Bordeaux (France), the port administration has launched open days to educate the public about its installations, careers, and expertise. In Malinska-Dubaniska (Croatia), the city has opened a maritime heritage interpretation centre on its waterfront, to enhance its tourist credentials and demonstrate its connection to the sea for the general public. All of these initiatives will help to anchor maritime culture in the regions concerned, and may perhaps inspire people to seek a career in the port and maritime sector.

Sustainably cruising into World Tourism Day

World Tourism Day has been held on 27 September since 1980. As the tourism sector continues to grow, the impacts it has on the environment is increasing as well. The cruise industry has been taking measures to reduce its impact and to sail its way into a sustainable future. As the sector was heavily impacted by Covid during the past two years, it has taken the time to reshape itself. Green corridors for cruise ships have been created, cruise lines have discussed with cities and ports on how to collaborate more sustainably, and some lines have banned single use plastic. To understand better the steps that ports, municipalities, and cruise organisations are taking to support the sustainable transition of cruising, we have asked some of our members the following question for World Tourism Day: “How can local authorities (port authorities and municipalities) support sustainable cruise/maritime tourism in port cities?”
