Chilean ports get "clean" status

Coronel, Cabo Froward, Lirquén, Oxiquim, Talcahuano Terminal Portuario (TTP), Penco and San Vicente Terminal Internacional (SVTI) were awarded the Clean Production (APL) certification, having completed 64 actions committed in the first environmental agreement of the main Chilean port system.


The port system of the Biobío Region is the most important in Chile, with an average annual transfer of 25 Mt. Its seven ports implemented this voluntary agreement to achieve a more sustainable performance.


The director of the Chile’s ASCC, Giovanni Calderón, explained: “We are raising the standards from the social, environmental and economic of port activity. There is no other way."

Jorge Serón, the local president of the Chilean Wood Corporation said that “the incorporation of this agreement allows us to present ourselves very well in international markets.”


Javier Anwandter, CEO of Puerto Coronel, said the APL "opens up a different perspective of how we have to face the business, to understand that our business has to be sustainable, and that will allow us to continue growing."


The agreement covers actions in marine environment protection, dredging and waste management, energy efficiency, and occupational safety and training.
