Green labelling in Dakar

The El Hadji Malick SY ro-ro terminal in Dakar (Senegal) has been awarded the Green Terminal label following the audit conducted by Bureau Veritas.


The audit was based on the eight pillars of the labelling process, which include work processes, building infrastructures that comply with international standards, acquiring more eco-friendly handling equipment, waste management and training employees in best practices in environmental issues.


Dakar Terminal improved its environmental performance, particularly by optimising its handling equipment fuel consumption, which has decreased by 26% since 2019. The terminal was also able to reduce urban congestion by digitising transport documents and transferring imported vehicles to the dry port of Diamniadio.


The share of recovery of hazardous and non-hazardous waste increased from 4% in 2019 to 64% in 2020. Dakar Terminal is a subsidiary of Bolloré Ports. (sh)
