Président du directoire Of Grand Port Maritime de Dunkerque

Maurice Georges, Chairman of the Commitee, Grand Port Maritime of Dunkirk :

“Maritime ports are particularly concerned by climate change, public ecology and energy transition policies applied to sea, river and land transport as well as industrial activities and port logistics. They are also the guarantors of balanced protection for their coastline, for biodiversity preservation as well as the adjustment to the risk of rising sea levels. Dunkirk-Port is part of the pioneering ports combatting climate change. It is the first French port to offer dock-side electrification for container ships. We are aiming for carbon neutrality by 2050 by implementing virtuous actions in terms of sea, river and land transport, particularly by developing our containerised freight offer and opening up to the masses river and rail transport serving the port hinterland. We will be one of the first ports to have renewable energy produced by an almost 40 ha solar farm in 2022 and we are promoting the development of new industrial activities recovering CO2. More generally, along with our partners, we are organising future strategic networks for decarbonisation: power supply, CO2 hub, heat superhighway, and of course, hydrogen which will play a major role in our territory’s future ecosystem.”
