ECOSLC is delighted to congratulate Jordan Industrial Ports Company for achieving ECOPORTS PERS Certification. The port terminal received PERS accreditation in July 2021 and achieving the certification for the first time.  

EcoPorts PERS is the only port sector specific environmental management standard. The standard requires, amongst others, that the port presents an overview of major environmental issues that shows the environmental impact of the port operations and connected with this, to present the legal requirements that are aimed to reduce this impact.

It is the flagship product of the EcoPorts network and is offered outside Europe by ECOSLC Foundation through the ECOSLC website (www.ecoslc.eu). Compliance with the PERS standard is independently assessed by Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance (Netherlands) and the certificate has a validity of 2 years.
