World’s largest port operators join forces for the environment
Global marine terminal operators DP World, Hutchison Port Holdings Limited (HPH), APM Terminals, PSA International and Shanghai International Port Group (SIPG) – five of the world’s largest port operators, and joined by the Port of Rotterdam Authority (PRA), have launched the first ever joint industry initiative of this magnitude to promote environmental awareness and make a sustainable difference in the communities in which they operate, APM Terminals said in its press release.
The campaign will take place between 14 - 21 September this year with focus on three main themes: re-use and recycling, climate change and the communities in which the industry giants operate. A range of activities covering all three themes will be organised by the participating port operators’ local business units to tackle and raise awareness globally.
The campaign will also identify local partners in the effort to improve the environment. Creating and upgrading local green spaces, launching educational programmes, adopting waste recycling measures and community engagement are some of the activities that will take place.
