The "Trieste & Monfalcone Blue Agreement"

The agreement was signed today by Costa Cruises, MSC, DFDS and Ulusoy

The "Trieste & Monfalcone" has become operational Blue Agreement", the voluntary agreement aimed at reducing significantly the emissions into the atmosphere produced by ships from cruise and ro-ro that climb the two ports managed by the Authority of Port System of the Eastern Adriatic Sea. The agreement is was signed today in Trieste, at the Lloyd's Tower, by the shipping companies Costa Cruises, MSC, DFDS and Ulusoy.

The document, inspired by a model already activated in other Italian ports, provides that, voluntarily, the ships already in the phase of approach to the ports, to the mooring, and in the phase of removal, use a fuel with a low sulfur content. With this mode the emissions are lower than what it would normally be allowed by law. The aim of the initiative is, therefore, to further reduce the environmental impact generated by the port traffic on the urban fabric of cities, to the benefit of the citizens who reside there and of the air quality in general.
