Our Plus for More Sustainability

hafen+ is the name of our Sustainability Strategy that we use to steer our ports towards a lively future. We view sustainability as an added value that the 15 port locations of NPorts contribute to a strong coastal region in Niedersachsen: More value for people, planet, and prosperity!



The opportunities and challenges of our Sustainability Strategy are different for each of our sites. Be it Brake, Wilhelmshaven, Cuxhaven, Norden, Stade, or Emden: Our ports operate in completely different environments with special focuses. But some of the stations are the same for all ports. Join us on our virtual tour of the port through seven stations, where we generate sustainable added value for our coastal region in Niedersachsen through targeted development.

In the online area hafen+, we report in depth and often about the ‘plus’ of our Sustainability Strategy: In stories, numbers, facts & figures. Follow the stories or go straight to our reporting. Depending, on how you want to start the voyage with us.
