Indicator 9. Share of direct employment from circular activities and projects in the port area

What this indicator measures

Link to a (sample) matching strategic goal

  • “Create sustainable employment, amongst others, focusing on the circular economy” (Port Oostende – Annual Report 2021)

How data are collected and managed


Current limitations

It is difficult to accurately allocate the number of FTEs to both circular and non-circular activities.

The measurement is restricted to the port area, a legally defined territory which is under the management of the Port Management Body (PMB). For example, the boundaries of the Flemish ports are determined by a decision of the Flemish Government.
