ECO Sustainable Logistic Chain Foundation (ECOSLC) is a Foundation set up in 2010 by key team members from the original Ecoports Foundation that was started in 1996. The undersigned has been the founder and Chairman of Ecoports Foundation and is now Chairman of ECOSLC.
Since 1994, the vision of EcoPorts has been to create a level playing field on port environmental management in Europe through the sharing of knowledge and experience between port professionals. Serving the principle of "ports-helping-ports" EcoPorts brought together a network of port professionals from several European ports committed to exchange views and practices and to commonly work towards the improvement of the sector's environmental performance in line with the principles of voluntary self regulation.
