ICTSI is committed to ensuring a sustainable future by maintaining efficient operations and minimizing the impact of port operations on the environment. We are continuously seeking to improve our environmental programs and policies, and we made it our duty to our stakeholders to address carbon emissions, manage waste more efficiently and consume fewer natural resources.
Context and Commitments
Change is just as crucial in business as continuity. Through contingency planning, we maintain operational efficiency amid unforeseen crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic. Guided by our environmental policies, we pledge to maximize our energy and resource efficiency, reduce our carbon footprint, lower emissions and improve waste management, alongside other sustainability initiatives.
We have sound sustainability policies and practices in place that pave the way for our terminals to meet their environmental goals. These include: utilizing renewable energy sources or leveraging on greener technologies and equipment; improved waste reduction efforts; and effluents management. We have also fortified our conservation and reforestation programs to advocate for biodiversity protection and preservation.
ICTSI’s terminals have been recognized for good environmental practices. Tecon Suape was awarded the Friend of the Ocean Seal by the Port of Suape, and VICT was praised for its ACC wash bay. CGSA, meanwhile, obtained Carbon Neutral Certification.
With such promising results, concrete policies on energy and water management are in the pipeline for other hubs and terminals. Our values and our sustainability agenda push us to pursue environmental initiatives that benefit not only our company and our communities but our planet as a whole.
Key Performance Indicators
We demonstrate the strong progress we are delivering by participating in leading international benchmarks. Across ICTSI we have implemented various initiatives towards the particular goal of lowering carbon emissions in our daily operations. This has enabled us to reduce our energy consumption, which not only makes financial sense but also prevents pollution where we operate. Our performance since 2017 demonstrates significant progress, and we will continue to introduce initiatives to combat global warming.
