Our environmental management system includes realising and assessing environmental impacts, planning and implementing improvements, preparing for emergencies, and ensuring that environmental impacts are monitored and communication lines are open.
By managing environmental issues systematically we can reduce the negative environmental impacts caused by the port, raise environment awareness and increase interaction between the stake holders working in the port.
