The Port Environmental Index (PEI) is a quantitative composite indicator of the overall environmental performance of a port.

The core idea behind PEI is to devise a comprehensive, standardized and transparent methodology to be used as an integrator of all the significant environmental aspects of ports and the related impacts into a single metric. The metric will be used by ports to:

  • evaluate their own environmental performance in a comprehensive integrative manner,
  • compare their environmental performance to other ports that have deployed the metric.

 This use case is transversal and will be included in the other use cases described in PIXEL.

Involved PIXEL ports are: Port of Bordeaux, Port of Monfalcone, Port of Piraeus, Port of Thessaloniki
