UK Ports have made significant inroads in adhering to current environmental legislation but feel they could and should be doing much more, according to new research The 'Green Ports'* survey of 100 port decision makers in Britain revealed that many recognise the growing importance of environmental management, with the majority (89%) of respondents stating that they already have an environmental policy in place. However, an equal number do not feel they are doing enough and have made a commitment to bolster their environmental skills base in the coming year.
The UK's ports are vital gateways for trade and travel. Nearly 1 billion tonnes of international freight and 177 million tonnes of domestic freight moved through UK ports in 2009. Thirty-two million international passengers use UK ports each year. Another 40 million use them for domestic journeys, including river crossings. Our national economy needs a thriving ports industry.
