0

Kribi Conteneurs Terminal, operator of the container terminal of the Autonomous Port of Kribi, has been  granted the Green Terminal label following the audit conducted between 17 and 18 March 2022 by  Bureau Veritas. This label rewards the efforts made by the company to reduce the impact of its activities  on the environment by implementing eco-responsible measures.  

The audit was conducted by Bureau Veritas experts and based on the eight pillars of the labelling  process. This process includes work procedures, building infrastructure in line with international  standards, waste management and training employees in best environmental practices.  

Committed to a vast investment programme, Kribi Conteneurs Terminal has been rewarded for the  quality of its facilities, built in line with the latest international standards. The terminal also has a rainwater  and wastewater treatment plant, which ensures efficient management of discharges and waste.  Implementing systems to digitise activities has made it possible to significantly reduce the greenhouse  gas emissions released by stakeholders (scope 3). In terms of a dedicated power supply, Kribi  Conteneurs Terminal uses the hydro power network, avoiding the use of diesel. Each year, the company  also carries out actions of solidarity in key sectors such as health and education, while participating in  the fluidity of the supply chain in Cameroon and the countries of the sub-region.  

This label rewards the efforts made by the Kribi Conteneurs Terminal teams to reduce the impact on  the environment by implementing eco-responsible measures. This distinction, which goes beyond being  a privilege, is a responsibility that commits us to continue our efforts to further reduce the environmental  impact of our activities,” states Eric Lavenu, Managing Director of Kribi Conteneurs Terminal.  

We are extremely pleased that Kribi Conteneurs Terminal will become our 6th port concession to be  granted the Green Terminal label. It certifies the seriousness of our commitments and the measures put  in place to mitigate the impact of our activities on the environment. The Green Terminal environmental  label allows us to offer our partners and the users of our terminals logistics solutions that are both  efficient and eco-responsible,” said Olivier de Noray, Managing Director of Bolloré Ports and Terminals. 

Bolloré Ports, a leading operator of port terminals in Africa, Asia and America, launched the “Green  Terminal” environmental labelling process in June 2021, which aims to reduce the carbon footprint of its  activities by using a precise methodology that covers all environmental issues. A first in the port sector,  this approach has been validated by Bureau Veritas, one of the world’s leading companies in testing,  inspection and certification.
