During the first half of 2021 the port of Eivissa reduced the consumption of its water supply system by 50% compared with the same period in 2020, saving the equivalent of 26,000 cubic metres of wa
2,563 km travelled and 561 kg of CO2 less in the atmosphere. These are the figures produced by the CicloGreen sustainable mobility pilot project during the month of April. Some thirty employees of the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) took part in this 30-day challenge, whose main objective was to promote sustainable mobility within the organisation in an effort to reduce CO2 emissions from transport.
Employees preferred the bicycle as a means of transport, although they also walked, used public transport, carpooling or electric vehicles.
The Ciclogreen mobile application enabled employees to record their sustainable journeys and enter a prize draw to win various prizes, such as a bicycle or a weekend in a country house.
Through this challenge, the APB is collaborating in the process of transition from the prevailing mobility model in our cities to a more sustainable, efficient and safe one.
The general lines of the APB's Environmental Strategy were presented before the prize draw among the employees who had passed the challenge. As a result, numerous projects were developed, in particular, those for monitoring air quality at ports, electrical land connections of ships in port, the Cleanport project, the meteorological and oceanographic support system (SAMOA), Signals XXI, the agreement with the Save the Med Foundation, sustainable cleaning of the port waters, monitoring of litter bins and organic matter containers, energy transformation of the terminals and the GreenHyland, Portfoward and Balith projects.
