The certification, which marks CGSA's compliance to ISO 14064 standards, lauds the company's policies that are directed and translated towards greater sustainability initiatives, as well as the incorporation of technologies that reduce the operation's impact on Ecuador's largest and premier maritime gateway.
TUV Rheinland certified that CGSA compensated for 32,762 tonnes of carbon dioxide from January 1 to December 31, 2017, based on the 2016 Emissions Inventory corresponding to the Annual Carbon Capture Report of the 'Bosques del Area Ecologica de Conservacion Municipal Tinajillas - Rio Gualaceno y areas de manglar de Cerrito de los Morrenos,' thus demonstrating the company's faithful commitment to the environment.
'This international certification reflects our effort to establish policies that guarantee sustainable action in favour of the environment through sustainable practices that counteract any polluting emission from the port terminal,' said local terminal manager Jose Antonio Contreras.
