Bolloré Ports launches “Green Terminal” initiative

The global port operator, Bolloré Ports has launched the "Green Terminal" certification process, which aims to reduce the carbon footprint of its activities by using a methodology that covers all environmental issues.

Bolloré Ports' Green Terminal label is based on the following eight fundamental pillars:

  • Optimised management by an environmental management system based on the ISO 14001 standard
  • An eco-social commitment to local stakeholders
  • Building infrastructure in accordance with international standards
  • Deploying eco-friendly handling solutions and equipment that promote the energy transition
  • Implementing digital solutions
  • Collection, recovery and recycling of waste
  • Water and air treatment and control
  • Training employees in practices related to environmental issues.

The specific approach has been validated by Bureau Veritas, a France-based company specialized in testing, inspection and certification. Starting this year, Bureau Veritas experts will support Bolloré Ports in the deployment of the label and will be responsible for carrying out annual audits to assess the environmental performance of its port terminals with a view to issuing a certificate of compliance, according to a statement.

"The Green Terminal label allows us to offer public partners and users of our terminals logistics solutions that are both efficient and eco-responsible. As part of this process, we also aim to accelerate our investments in alternative, greener and smarter solutions,” commented Olivier de Noray, Managing Director of Bolloré Ports and Terminals.

Bolloré Ports said it is implementing various logistics, digital and multimodal solutions aimed at reducing urban congestion, improving the transportation of goods, and reducing the impact of its activities on the environment.
