Each year, PSA launches the annual Go Green Fortnight, a Group-wide green initiative aimed at promoting environmental awareness and action within our global family. During this period, all PSA companies and staff around the world are encouraged to contribute towards creating environmentally-friendly work communities.
For the third consecutive year, PSA participated in the “1000km van Kom op tegen Kanker” cycling event with eight enthusiastic cyclists. The intention of this event is to raise money for the cancer foundation, which distributes the received donations to several purposes: diagnosis and therapy of residual tumor cells with as aim to increase the survival chances and enhance the quality of life of cancer patients.
Antwerp's largest terminal operators join hands to support GO GREEN, a campaign from Global Ports Group in which the largest players in the global port community are represented.
PSA Antwerp / MPET and DP World will jointly set up a campaign focussing on ECO-driving. Additionally, the terminal operators jointly planted a tree, which represented the symbolic start of the 'Plant a Tree'-action. With this initiative, PSA Antwerp / MPET will offer a tree to all employees to plant at home.
As PSA strongly believes in the importance of taking care of the environment, we have launched a new initiative to sensitize our staff and to 'greenify' our daily environment: all PSA Antwerp & MPET employees were offered a small buxus tree to plant at home.
That way, we hope to create our own symbolic 'PSA/MPET forest', enhancing our joint effort to create a sustainable and greener future.
After the hand-out, employees immediately started sharing pictures of the trees, which they planted at home, nearby our terminals or in a forest or park nearby.
