The Port of Rotterdam successfully renews its PERS certificate
On Thursday 31 May 2018 Allard Castelein, on behalf of the Port of Rotterdam, received the Port Environmental Review System (PERS) certificate from ESPO. This happened during the European Sea Ports Organization (ESPO) dinner in the Laurenskerk in Rotterdam.
PERS comprises a set of guidelines to (self-)assess the individual performance of ports in the area of environmental management. The assessment is carried out independently by Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance. Renewing the PERS certification fits well with our mission to create economic and social value and realize sustainable growth. We are committed to a safe, healthy and attractive port and environment. We want to combat climate change while at the same time ensuring that the port area continues to make a major contribution to the economy and employment in the region.
