Port operators launch 'Go Green' campaign

PRESS RELEASE

September 17, 2015: The Port of Felixstowe is creating an environmental corridor as part of the 'Go Green' campaign launched by Hutchison Port Holdings (HPH)  in conjunction with DP World, APM Terminals, PSA International and Shanghai International Port Group (SIPG) – five of the world's largest port operators.

They have been joined by the Port of Rotterdam Authority in the first ever joint industry initiative of this magnitude to promote environmental awareness and make a sustainable difference in the communities in which they operate.

The initiative at Felixstowe will include the refurbishment of part of a system of dykes within the port. The work will include the improvement of habitats for wildlife as well as enhancing green areas within a busy industrial complex by planting a mixture of trees, grasses and wild flowers.

Clemence Cheng, Chief Executive Officer of the Port of Felixstowe and Managing Director of HPH Europe division, said: "The Port of Felixstowe has a long history of environmental achievements dating back to the creation of the Trimley Marsh Nature Reserve in the 1980s. Our participation in the Go Green initiative is the latest example of a commitment to the environment which, in the last few years, has seen the installation of over 2,000 solar panels at the port and investments in cleaner, more energy efficient plant. This has resulted in a 25 percent reduction in CO2 emissions over the period."

Dr Therese Coffey MP, the Member of Parliament for Felixstowe and Deputy Leader of the House of Commons, said: "I am pleased that Hutchison Ports and the Port of Felixstowe are taking part in this global environmental initiative. Whilst the ports industry is international in nature, all ports are rooted in the communities they serve. Felixstowe has shown a commitment to improving the environment and I hope it will continue to work with other local groups in the future."

Commenting on the global Go Green initiative, Eric Ip, Hutchison Port Holdings Limited Group Managing Director, said: "Sustaining the environment we live in is one of the major concerns of the modern world and something no corporation can ignore. Environmental concerns pervade the entire HPH organisation, from the paper in our printers to the cranes in our yards. By putting our efforts together with other major port and maritime industry players for this worthy cause, we hope to lead by example and, in the process, do our bit to create a cleaner, greener world for everyone."

The Go Green project has been launched by HPH in conjunction with DP World, APM Terminals, PSA International and Shanghai International Port Group (SIPG) – five of the world's largest port operators. They have been joined by the Port of Rotterdam Authority in the first ever joint industry initiative of this magnitude to promote environmental awareness and make a sustainable difference in the communities in which they operate.
