'Go Green' campaign a "great success"

Five leading terminal operators joined forces last month to promote environmental awareness and sustainability.

DP World, Hutchison Port Holdings Limited, APM Terminals, PSA International and Shanghai International Port Group were joined by the Port of Rotterdam Authority for the week-long ‘Global Go Green’ campaign.

As part of presentations to local schools and colleges, students heard how an environmental programme was safeguarding more than 320,000 animals by relocating them from the site of what will be the UK’s largest logistics park to a nature reserve.

Other initiatives include the largest marine monitoring programme in Europe, part of a project to dredge a 100km channel in the River Thames to enable the world’s largest container ships to dock close to London.

The campaign ran from 14 to 21 September and was deemed a “great success” by Tom Coulter, environment technical coordinator for DP World London Gateway.
