The British Ports Association has published a sustainable development resolution, which commits to supporting the dual aims of a strong and healthy environment and a thriving economy.
The BPArepresents 350 ports, terminals and port facilities across the UK. UKPorts handle 95% of the UK’s international trade, keeping goods moving in an efficient manner that underpins the UK’s economy. The industry is also highly productive and employs over 101,000 people. Ports are often hubs of regional economic activity and support a wide range of industries including energy, fishing, automative, aggregates, agriculture and of course the entire maritime sector.
