EcoPort certified

Presented by the European Sea Ports Organisation (ESPO) this PERS accreditation means that we continue to be a member of the EcoPorts network, the main environmental initiative of the European ports sector. We are proud to be one of only two PERS accredited ports in the UK, and one of sixteen UK ports who hold EcoPort status.

Net zero emissions

Our Port is on track to achieve net-zero air quality emissions in 2021.  In August 2020, we introduced new Gas-to-Liquid (GTL) fuel for our forklifts and other machinery to help achieve this ambition. We also took delivery of a fleet of electric vehicles.

Renewable energy production

We remain committed to achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2030 and we have already successfully reduced our reliance on fossil fuels and hugely increased our generation and use of green energy.  We have made significant strides forward in large-scale solar energy production in partnership with a local community energy project as well as engaging in wind energy production. 

In 2020, we started a new water-source heat pump project for our site at Maritime House, which will remove 70 tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere.
