Guinea : Conakry Terminal awarded Green Terminal label

(BOLLORE ) - Conakry Terminal, a subsidiary of Bolloré Ports and operator of the container terminal of the Autonomous Port of Conakry, has been granted the Green Terminal label following the audit conducted on 12 November 2021 by Bureau Veritas. This label rewards the efforts made by the company to reduce the impact of its activities on the environment by implementing eco-responsible measures.

The audit was conducted by Bureau Veritas experts and based on the eight pillars of the labelling process, which include work processes, building infrastructures that comply with international standards, acquiring environmentally friendly handling equipment, waste management and training employees in best practices related to environmental issues.

Conakry Terminal is participating in the fluidity of the supply chain for Guinea and the countries of the sub-region through its commitment to a programme to modernise its infrastructures. The company has introduced a number of innovative solutions, such as the digitalisation of transport documents and electronic payment, which help to reduce travel and therefore greenhouse gas emissions. Each year, the company also undertakes solidarity initiatives in key sectors such as health and education.

“Being granted this label constitutes recognition of the efforts of all the employees of Conakry Terminal. It has given us the opportunity to organise several training courses on best practices related to environmental issues for our employees, which complement and reinforce our actions as for recycling, dematerialisation of documents or electrification of handling equipment. We will continue our efforts to further reduce the environmental impact of our activities”, explains Emmanuel Masson, Managing Director of Conakry Terminal.

Bolloré Ports, a leading operator of port terminals in Africa, Asia and the Americas, launched the “Green Terminal” environmental labelling process in June, which aims to reduce the carbon footprint of its activities by using a precise methodology that covers all environmental issues. A first in the port sector, this approach has been validated by Bureau Veritas, one of the world's leading companies in testing, inspection and certification.
