04 Oct 2011

ESPO congratulates the Port of Piraeus and Cyprus Ports Authority on their recent Port Environmental Review System (PERS) certification. The certification verifies that the ports’ environmental management programme is in line with the requirements set by the EcoPorts PERS, the only port sector specific environmental management standard. The ports achieved certification after the positive evaluation of their application by Lloyd’s Register.

The Port of Piraeus has been a long supporter of the EcoPorts approach and has been consistently using the EcoPorts tools since 2004. Cyprus Ports Authority achieves PERS certification for the first time and ESPO is delighted to welcome CPA to the network of PERS holders.
