The order of the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda has been published today in the Official State Gazette (BOE) appointing Jaume Colom Adrover as the new president of the Port Author
In recent years, the stakeholders of the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) have become increasingly concerned about air quality and its possible impact on the activity in the ports it manages, hence the conference scheduled for 15 July at the APB’s institutional headquarters (Moll Vell, 3) from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm, entitled “Air quality, a priority for our ports”.
During the meeting, experienced speakers will address the problem and the solution from different perspectives, placing special emphasis on the importance of having sufficient economic and human resources to ensure that the processes of monitoring and controlling air quality are rigorous and accurate, in order to obtain objective, reliable and real data for accountability and strategic decision-making.
The Director General for Energy and Climate Change, Pep Malagrava, will therefore present the collaboration agreement between different institutions on air quality in Palma. The Sustainability Observatory will also be presented by Fernando Prieto, and the APB’s environmental strategy, by the head of the Quality, Environment, Innovation and CSR Department, Jorge Martín. Finally, the different projects related to this subject that the public authority is carrying out will be presented: air quality monitoring, the Eiffel project, Greenhyland and incorporation into the Ecological Transition Cluster.
Transparency and active listening
Through this type of meeting, which is open to the public and the media, the APB is committed to the transparency and active listening of its stakeholders, who are clearly concerned about the quality of the air they breathe. It is also focused on the joint search for solutions through institutional alliances that speed up the achievement of significant improvements, making port cities healthier and more resilient to the effects of climate change.
