Ports of Igoumenitsa and Tanger renew green certification
The European Sea Ports Organisation (Espo) congratulates the Tanger Med Port Authority (Morocco) and the Igoumenitsa Port Authority (Greece) for successfully renewing the EcoPorts’ environmental management standard (PERS). For Tanger (photo), this is the third time it has achieved the PERS certification, while it is Igoumenitsa’s fourth.
Both important Mediterranean ports, they received their PERS certificates in digital handover ceremonies. PERS certification requires the port to put forward a range of measures to demonstrate effective environmental management.
These measures range from identification and monitoring of the most pertinent environmental challenges to enhancing communication with the local community and increasing transparency through creating and publishing an environmental report. (amh)
