Dunkirk gains PERS certification
(Posted on 15/06/18)
In line with the commitments of the PA2D (Sustainable Development and Action Plan), Dunkerque-Port has received the EcoPorts network's PERS certification (Port Environmental Review System), granted by the ESPO (European Sea Ports Organisation).
This environmental management certification, specific to the port sector, attests to correct compliance with current rules and standards, and rewards involvement in projects and initiatives for better environmental performance in ports.
This European recognition also stresses the environmental and innovative actions that have been carried out by Dunkerque-Port for nearly ten years as part of its activities.
Following the renewal of its ISO 9001 certification, the PERS demonstrates Dunkerque-Port's determination to continue developing its activities through efficient and responsible environmental management. The exemplary approach followed in accordance with of the PA2D, the 2014-2018 Strategic Plan and the Quality, Safety and Environment Policy, stands as the framework for the port's new Environmental Policy.
Dunkirk joins the restricted network of the 33 PERS-certified ports among the 94 European and Mediterranean ports awarded the EcoPorts label, notably alongside the port of Calais.
