Port Dues Strategies and Incentives for Cruise Lines
“Port dues strategies and incentives for cruise line companies for using green port features” Concept Study has been conducted by Maritime Institute in Gdańsk as part of research within BSR Programme 2014-2020 Green Cruise Port project, Activity 4.1.2 (b). The Study is focused on the economic and environmental importance of port dues and incentives currently used in the Baltic Sea Region with recommendations for the future, presentation of the most crucial and innovative green solutions and providing best practices from the other areas. Due to its nature, cruise industry requires more customised solutions in terms of environmentally-based port dues and incentives. Cruise industry needs to develop more wider-scale incentives to meet shipping emissions standards and attract cruise operators. Those solutions should be popularized within all parties, with larger financial benefits and more harmonised discounts and rebates systems to stimulate both technological innovation and reduce ship emissions.
