The role of port authorities in Poland in achieving sustainable development goals based on the example of port of Gdynia authority

Renata Płoska , Joanna Próchniak , Piotr Nowak


The concept of sustainable development has become a generally accepted model for the development of the global socio-economic system which finally led to defining Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This chapter examines achieving SDGs at a landlord model port authority based on the example of the Port of Gdynia Authority (PGA). The PGA is one of only three Polish special purpose companies operating seaports of key importance to the country’s economy. The chapter may constitute a welcome contribution to the debate on the role of ports in the Polish economy at a time of substantial investments and changes to the legal environment. Identification and assessment of PGA activities in the area of sustainable development is, therefore, important from both a theoretical and practical perspective.
