Carbon Trust Standard for Carbon Awarded to Dover Harbour Board

Port also achieves commendation for carbon management performance

Dover Harbour Board is proud to announce the achievement of the Carbon Trust Standard for Carbon Award for the fourth time after accomplishing an impressive 17.2% absolute reduction in the Port of Dover carbon footprint.

The Carbon Trust Standard is a mark of excellence that is awarded in recognition of measuring, managing and reducing carbon emissions. Successful certification requires organisations to demonstrate good all-round carbon management performance in their day to day operations. The Port’s performance was particularly high in several categories including Responsibility, Operating Procedures, Investments and Supply Chain Engagement where scores of 100% were awarded by the Carbon Trust.

The Carbon Trust Standard is a two year certification and the Port of Dover will need to resubmit details of its carbon reduction endeavours in 2018 to retain the Standard.

Port of Dover General Manager Safety and Security, Emma Ward said: “This is an incredible achievement and I am extremely proud of all those involved. The Port of Dover Environmental Team has successfully led the challenging work to continually find and implement new and innovative ways to reduce the Port’s carbon footprint.

“As a responsible Port we will continue to examine environmentally responsible options in all areas of the business. I am confident the Port of Dover will continue to lead the way in this sector, realising another milestone in our aim to be the best Port in the world for our customers and our community.”
