Port of Dover wins third EcoPort PERS certification – Cruise Britain

Port of Dover has won a third certification through the EcoPorts’ environmental management standard (PERS).

The port is recognised in the field of clean energies both for shipping and port operations, biodiversity and monitoring pollution.

PERS (Port Environmental Review System) is the only port-specific environmental standard. The last five years have seen important increases in its recognition and membership, with 91 ports from 27 countries currently counting themselves as part of the EcoPorts Network, and 35 ports holding PERS certification.

Compliance with the EcoPorts’ PERS standard is independently assessed by LRQA Nederland B.V. and the certificate has a validity of two years. EcoPorts’ PERS is revised after the 2-year period to make sure that the port continues to meet the requirements.
