ECOSLC Foundation congratulates Mailiao Industrial Harbor / Mailiao Harbor Administration Corp., Taiwan, on achieving ECOPORTS PERS Certification in June 2024 for the fourth time.

EcoPorts PERS is the only environmental and sustainable management standard that is fully tailored to the specific roles and responsibilities of ports.

Among other things, the standard requires the port to present an overview of the main environmental and sustainable impacts of its port process. This is a basis for making improvements by applying environmental laws and our own environmental policy.

With this renewal of the certificate, the port demonstrates that it follows a long-term approach of continuous improvement. In doing so the port is also continuing its membership of the global network for sharing practical experiences between EcoPorts Certified Ports.

The continuous improvement of the port process often requires the introduction of innovations and new approaches in the port process. This can lead to improvements in environment and sustainability effects of the process but also to positive effects of the port’s business model.

This global Network is also intended to contribute to the greening of the port sector.

The EcoPorts Management system is offered outside Europe by ECOSLC Foundation, located in the Netherlands via the ECOSLC website (www.ecoslc.eu). Compliance with the EcoPorts PERS standard is independently assessed by LRQA Netherlands. The certificate has a validity of 2 years.
