c. an overview of major environmental aspects, impacts, and the port’s performance on these issues, based on the results of the monitoring of environmental performance indicators
d. a brief description of the environmental management organization
e. Identification of relevant stakeholders related to the port environment, their needs and expectations and the engagement of stakeholders with the environmental port activities,
f. some examples of environmental objectives, actions and projects
