Opening Conference - GREEN CRUISE PORT Sustainable Development of Cruise Port Locations

Hamburg, Germany 27. September 2016

The cruise shipping sector in the Baltic Sea region (BSR) and the neighbouring North Sea Area has grown enormously in the last decade, the cruise tourism is going to stay on a long term growth trend. The cruise fleet will continuously grow.

It is a need for cruise ship operators, ports and local communities to make cruise operations in ports sustainable as possible. They should together in cooperative manner encourage investments in environmentally friendly cruise port infrastructure. Smart traffic links for the integration of cruise tourism in the public passenger transport and supply system could be helpful.

Due to the transnational character of the cruise business, a joint planning process on transnational level will foster sustainable results. Consequently, the core challenge of the Interreg Baltic Sea Region GREEN CRUISE PORT project with its 10 partners and 10 supporting organizations from all BSR countries will involve and address main stakeholders (e.g. port authorities and operators, private cruise shipping lines, politicians) to find smart solutions.
