The port of Aarhus has since the 1st of January 2020 been granting a discount to all ships calling into the port, that are achieving at least 30 points in the Environmental Ship Index (ESI). They are the first port in Denmark to do this and are hoping to attract shipping lines that already have a sustainable profile as well as encourage others to make green choices.
“Other ports in Denmark have shown interest in the initiative, and we are happy to inspire and share experiences”, says the CCO of the port of Aarhus, Nicolai Krøyer.
