New Hansa of Sustainable Ports and Cities

New Hansa of Sustainable Ports and Cities

The New Hansa project was part of the UBC Agenda21 Action Programme 2004-2009 – Roadmap for Sustainable Baltic Cities and it aimed at increasing cooperation between the participating partners when facing the challenges of increasing sea transport and trade and their effects on the environment. During the project, good environmental solutions were analysed and common practices for ports in prevention of ships’ emissions to the air and receiving and handling waste and waste water from the ships, were created.

Funding

Part-funded by the EU (European Regional Development Fund) within the BSR INTERREG III B Neighbourhood Programme and by the Finnish Ministry of the Environment.

A project of 18 ports, cities and other partners aiming for ecologically, socially and economically sustainable ports in the Baltic Sea region.
