        在旧金山召开的全球气候行动峰会(Global Climate Action Summit)上,包括洛杉矶港、长滩港在内的七家港口港务局宣布成立减排联盟。
 
        七家港务局联合起草了一份名为《全球港口气候行动计划》(World Ports Climate Action Program)的提案,以抵御全球变暖。
 
        该计划由鹿特丹港务局局长兼CEO Allard Castelein于周四在旧金山召开的全球气候行动峰会(Global Climate Action Summit)上宣布。
 
        在峰会上,Castelein告诉听众们,航运活动、港口活动制造了“大量温室气体。你可以把这些温室气体的排放量和德国一个国家的排放概况做一个对比。因此鹿特丹港必须采取行动。”
 
        他表示鹿特丹港务局已经与长滩、洛杉矶、温哥华、汉堡、安特卫普、巴塞罗那六地的港务局成立“意愿联盟”以减少温室气体排放。
 
        他表示联盟将致力于:
        提升供应链数据科技应用效率;
        船舶在港时,增加使用可再生能源驱动船舶;
        使用可再生能源为货物装卸设备供电;
        船舶燃油脱碳化。
 
        鹿特丹港表示去年“荷兰二氧化碳排放量中有大约18%来自鹿特丹港”。
 
        Castelein表示该港口正在投资能效提高、碳捕捉技术与循环经济方案。
 
        荷兰环境大臣Stientje van Veldhoven向与会者表示荷兰有志于在2030年完成减排目标,在2030年前关闭数所燃煤发电站。她表示荷兰正在筹建世界最大的海上风电场,此外,到2030年,荷兰将使用零排放原料供能。
 
        她还表示世界人口预计突破100亿,“要想战胜气候变暖,我们不止要考虑能源问题,还要处理资源问题。”
 
        她表示荷兰力争在2030年资源消耗减半。
 
        “我们希望到2050年荷兰能成为循环经济体,资源可重复利用的零浪费经济体——我们利用旧的混凝土制造新的混凝土,利用旧塑料生产新塑料。”

Ports unite to reduce greenhouse gas emissions
 
Creation of coalition of seven ports authorities, including those in Los Angeles and Long Beach, announced at Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco.
 
Seven port authorities have joined together in an initiative called the World Ports Climate Action Program that seeks to address global warming.
 
The program was announced Thursday by Allard Castelein, the president and chief executive officer of the Port of Rotterdam Authority, at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco.
 
Shipping and port activites generate “a significant amount of greenhouse gases. You could compare the emissions to the emission profile of a country like Germany,” Castelein told the audience at the summit. “So the Port of Rotterdam has decided to take action.”
 
He said his agency along with port authorities in Long Beach, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Hamburg, Antwerp and Barcelona have created a “coalition of the willing” to reduce greenhouse gases.
 
He said the coalition will focus on:
• Increasing the efficiency of supply chains using data technology;
• Increasing the use of renewable energy to power ships when they are in port;
• Powering cargo-handling equipment with renewable energy; 
• And decarbonizing ship fuels.
 
The port said last year that “around 18 percent of the Dutch CO2 emissions are generated by the Port of Rotterdam.”
 
Castelein said the port is investing in increasing energy efficiency, carbon capture and circular economy initiatives.
 
Stientje van Veldhoven, the Dutch minister for the environment, told the conference that the Netherlands has a goal to reduce greenhouse gases by 2030 and plans to close down coal-fired power plants before 2030. She said the country is building the world’s largest offshore wind farm and that by 2030 new power will be created from zero-emission sources.
 
She also noted with the world population headed toward 10 billion people, “when we want to conquer climate change, we need to look beyond the energy question and address resources.”
  
She said the Netherlands has committed to halving resource use by 2030. 
 
 “We want to be a completely circular economy by 2050, a no-waste economy ... that reuses — making new concrete from old concrete, new plastic from old plastic.”
