Sustainability Advisory

Sustainable ports and terminals are safe, secure, efficient and reliable components of the global supply chain and are focused on minimising pollution, maximising energy efficiency and reducing waste (resource preservation).


Environment, social and economic factors are increasingly important strategic considerations for ports and terminal operators if they are to effectively respond to the growing concerns of the customers and communities they serve.

We apply our knowledge of the latest industry trends to help our clients better understand and address critical sustainability and resilience issues. We conduct our assessments and benchmarking exercises with reference to the latest industry best practice and apply the understanding we have gained from recent projects undertaken.


Our methodology to assess sustainability and resilience performance is fully compatible with the latest industry recognised schemes and accreditations.


The aims of our sustainability and resilience services are to:

  • Help ports and terminals gain a better understanding of their present position / performance in sustainability and resilience
  • Improve perception of ports and terminals among customers, investors and the wider port community
  • Provide advice to ports and terminals on how to improve their sustainability / resilience performance

An ’assessment’ and knowledge-based approach to sustainability

  • Our sustainability appraisal tool follows the ’triple bottom line’ approach for sustainability and involves performance assessment on selected topics under each of the three main sustainability areas or aspects.
  • Assessments can be undertaken for operating ports as well as river or maritime cargo terminals.

Topics are aligned with the main certification and reporting methodologies adopted by worldwide entities which are the most recognised references for assessing ports and maritime sustainability
