Authors: Varvne, Hanna

Abstract: Sustainable development is an urgent issue of high significance for modern societies. Ports around the world as well as part of the local societies also deal with sustainability issues. The sustainability work performed by each port needs to be assessed and report. For this the sustainability report can be used. In this master thesis, a sustainability assessment of the Gothenburg Port Authority has been conducted aiming to investigate the link between organisational structure and the sustainability work performed in the organisation. The sustainability report of the Gothenburg’s Port Authority has been used as a tool to assess the organisation’s sustainability work. The two methods chosen for this report have been a literature review regarding sustainability assessments and indicators as well as a series of interviews to get a better understanding of the organisation. The study is limited to sustainability work performed by ports and more specifically the Gothenburg Port Authority. The produced results show that the organisational structure has an impact on the sustainability work. The format of the sustainability report also needs to develop further to become a useful tool for future strategic decision-making processes. Additionally, the organisation’s identity has an impact on the sustainability report. The results have been analysed and discussed and suggestions have been proposed for future improvements to the Gothenburg Port Authority.
