Ports of Paraná holds second panel at COP28

Portos do Paraná participated this Wednesday (06), in the second panel of the Conference on Climate Change (COP28), in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates. With the theme “Cities, regions, urbanization and transport”, the Director of Environment, João Paulo Santana, addressed issues involving programs related to the environmental and social area of the public company.

“In the second presentation, we showed what I called ‘Porto’s homework’. So we present the environmental monitoring programs, environmental control, our conditions in general, in the physical environment, in the social environment and in the biotic environment”, explained Santana. This is the fourth time that the public company from the Government of the State of Paraná has been invited to represent the entire global port sector at the event.

Portos do Paraná’s first presentation at COP28 took place on Tuesday (05), with the panel “Climate change – decarbonization and sustainability”. Sustainable navigation and local projects carried out with the State’s coastal communities were presented, such as the Degraded Areas Recovery Program (PRAD). The achievement of the international Ecoports certificate was also presented, the most important certification in the world focused on port environmental management. The ports of Paraná were the first Brazilian public ports to receive the certificate.

In addition to the director, the event was attended by the CEO of Portos do Paraná, Luiz Fernando Garcia; the Secretary of Infrastructure and Logistics, Sandro Alex; and the administrative advisor of Portos do Paraná, Leandro Pazzeto Arruda.


The 28th United Nations (UN) Climate Change Conference continues until December 12th in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates, and the expectation, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), is that more concrete actions take place, compared to COP 27, when many negotiations were still on paper. The United Arab Emirates – hosts of COP 28 – are officially positioned to benefit from the energy transition. It is believed that the key point of COP 28 will be the discussion around the Paris Agreement, and how nations put into practice the actions provided for by this agreement, which aims to limit the rise in the planet’s temperature to 1.5° C, by 2050.
