ECOSLC Foundation congratulates Port Autonome de Cotonou, Benin, on achieving ECOPORTS PERS Certification September 2023 for the first 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.
EcoPorts Certification makes the port a member of the global Network of EcoPorts Certified ports. This network was set up to share practical experiences between these ports. 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 Lloyd’s Register, LRQA, Netherlands. The certificate has a validity of 2 years.
