As per ESPO, a further step is taken by guide than previous editions, as the new guide introduces a common framework for action under Five Es : Exemplify, Enable, Encourage, Engage and Enforce. This action framework is applied to five selected environmental issues: air quality, energy conservation and climate change, noise management, waste management and water management.

The application of the Five Es is showing the way towards a comprehensive and integrated approach, said Commission Vice-President Siim Kallas, in the foreword to the new guide. The Commission appreciates ESPO s approach in assisting ports to implement the relevant EU rules rigorously and is following this initiative with great interest.

This Guide is a product of ports for ports and I am very grateful to the members of the Sustainable Development Sustainable development is a socio-ecological process characterized by the fulfilment of human needs while maintaining the quality of the natural environment indefinitely.
