Terminal Roulier d’Abidjan (TERRA), which provides of handling and activities related to ro-ro ships at the Port of Abidjan, received the “Green Terminal” label issued by Bureau Veritas. This attests to the significant reduction in the environmental impact of its activities.
TERRA has been committed to this certification process since October 2021, focusing its efforts around a number of aspects: in particular, employee awareness of and involvement in environmental issues, implementing actions to reduce paper and plastic waste, optimising water and energy use, and sound management of the allocation of handling equipment.
“TERRA is proud to receive the Green Terminal label, having worked for several years to reduce the environmental impact of its activities. This reflects our ongoing commitment to achieve our performance objectives while integrating eco-responsible processes,” said Joël BROUX, Managing Director of TERRA.
A modern terminal, built in accordance with international standards, TERRA handled 39,854 vehicles and 22,617 EVP containers in 2021. The company now wants to consolidate its environmental approach through waste recovery and recycling, and by supporting environmental initiatives and acquiring more energy-efficient equipment.
The “Green Terminal” label launched by Bolloré Ports in June 2021, in partnership with Bureau Veritas, aims to help reduce the carbon footprint of its activities based on a methodology that encompasses every environmental concern. Since the launch, eight Bolloré Ports terminals have been awarded the label, and another 10 are expected to receive it in the coming months.
