World’s top port operators come together to push green agenda

The world’s largest port operators have come together to push a joint green agenda.

Go Green is the first ever joint environmental initiative between DP World, Hutchison Port Holdings Limited, APM Terminals, PSA International, Shanghai International Port Group and Port of Rotterdam Authority.

The campaign will take place between September 14 – 21 this year with a focus on three main themes: re-use and recycling, climate change and the communities in which the industry giant operate.

DP World Chairman Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem said: “This campaign is a watershed for marine terminal operators – it marks the beginning of a joint effort to bring about positive change to the lives of our people.”

Port of Rotterdam Authority CEO Allard Castelein commented: “It is good to see that the terminal operators are working together internationally to improve the environment.”
