Buenos Aires becomes first Green Award port in South America

Buenos Aires has become the first port in South America to join the Green Award.

In a statement the Port of Administration of Buenos Aires said it had evaluated the advantages of several initiatives to encourage healthy and safe operations in the port and went for the Green Award.

“Since the port is in a strategic location, the metropolitan area of the beautiful city of Buenos Aires, the Port Administration is primarily concerned with issues in port that can affect the local community. Buenos Aires seeks to improve air and water quality and to reduce environmental impacts,” the port said.

Buenos Aires is the largest transhipment port in Argentina and offers a 10% discount on vessel dues to Green Award ships from 22 May this year.
