Sustainable entrepreneurship is awarded in port of Antwerp and Zeebrugge

Port of Antwerp-Bruges, MLSO, Alfaport Voka and Apzi-Voka have launched the Sustainable Port Award for 2023, which will crown a sustainable project in the port area.  

To push sustainability in the economic engine of Flanders, the port of Antwerp and Zeebrugge have established a new award that aims to inspire the next generations to enjoy prosperity and sustainable growth.  

The award will be awarded every two years and is a reinvention of the Sustainability Award that has already been achieved by three companies. In 2023, a fourth project will join.  

Any company in the port area of Antwerp and Zeebrugge with a sustainable project that focuses on one or more of the five objectives set out by the award. The five objectives are: good health and well-being; decent work and economic growth; industry, innovation and infrastructure; sustainable cities and communities and; climate action. 

Jacques Vandermeiren, CEO of Port of Antwerp-Bruges, says: ‘With the fourth, expanded edition of what used to be the Sustainability Award, we once again show that sustainability is at the heart of our strategic vision for the future. By 2050, we want to be the first world port to be climate neutral. We are delighted that we can also count on an enthusiastic partner in West Flanders who fully supports our sustainable vision, because the future will be sustainable or will not be.’
