GREENBERTH aims to encourage these port operators to integrate SMEs in their strategic business development. The project aims to study in detail the improvement opportunities of energy efficiency and the use of technologies based on environmental-friendly energies to be implemented through the exchange of best practices and experiences of six reference Mediterranean ports. Port Authorities have a great influence over the companies which integrate the so called Port Communities and these entities need to continuously improve their processes and technologies to adapt their business models to the realities of the internal and external market. For this reason, GREENBERTH proposes the participation of several agents in order to define strategic plans among port-logistic operators and energy efficiency SMEs.
