Tribuga port to implement SuPort sustainability system

Thursday, June 24, 2010

Colombia's Tribuga port in Choco department will implement the SuPort sustainability evaluation system developed by Spain's Santander port authority (APS) to analyze its development needs, APS president Christian Manrique, told BNamericas.

The system combines over 70 variables to determine the sustainability of a port facility, and the changes required for the port to become financially, environmentally and socially sustainable, Manrique said.

Some of the aspects analyzed by the system include the port operator's financial and administrative aspects, environmental management and energy consumption, as well as the port's relationship with nearby cities, its workers and nearby residents, Manrique added.
