“Certificate confirms pioneering role”

BREMEN/BREMERHAVEN. In November, Bremen and Bremerhaven had their exemplary environmental performance certified by Lloyd’s Register again in accordance with the PERS (Port Environmental Review System) management standard. An essential component of the certification process was formed by the 2020 Environmental Report, which presented all the legal and environmental policy requirements in addition to an update to the key environmental figures. “We take our responsibility for the environment seriously,” states Bremen’s Senator for Science and Ports, Dr. Claudia Schilling. “Ecological concerns play a central role in the expansion of the ports and their upkeep. For example, in June we decided to create an additional offering for the shore-side supply of electricity in Bremen’s ports. As a part of this, eight fixed shore-side power facilities for maritime shipping and two additional connections for inland shipping are to be created by 2023. PERS is an excellent tool for helping ports implement an environmental management programme in line with the recommendations of the European Sea Ports Organisation. As Germany’s largest seaports, Bremen and Bremerhaven confirm with the certificate their pioneering role as sustainable ports.”
