The Ministry of Shipping in India has started a new project to aim to help make major ports across the country cleaner and greener.

Project Green Ports will include 12 initiatives, such as preparation and monitoring plans, the acquisition of equipment required for monitoring environmental pollution and setting up sewage treatment plants.

Other projects include setting up schemes for energy generation from renewable energy sources, the completion of Oil Spill Response facilities and improving the quality of harbour waters.

Alongside this, there will also be 20 activities identified under Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan as part of Project Green Port.

These will aim to promise the cleanliness of the port premises, such as cleaning the wharf, repairing of port roads and modernising all the toilet complexes in the operational area.

In order to achieve these objectives, the Government of India has promised that regular training will be provided to the staff in order to generate awareness and inculcate a positive attitude towards keeping the environment clean and green.

All the major ports in the area have already initiated action on the above mentioned activities and are making good progress.
