Home Commitments Innovate

Environmental issues are vital for transport and logistics companies, which are duty bound to do their utmost to shrink their environmental footprint. A committed partner to the energy transition through large-scale projects, Bolloré Africa Logistics places great importance on reducing the environmental impact of its activities and controlling the attendant risks. 


Therefore, we continuously invest in the search for innovative solutions that respond to environmental concerns in industrialised countries and provide access to energy in emerging countries. As part of our forward-thinking approach, we ensure that our infrastructure projects comply with the most stringent environmental standards. 

Fully aware that the preservation of natural ecosystems is a priority, we review technical redevelopment programs and implement them in our operating regions. Our approach draws on a full range of best practices and supplements the ISO 14001 standard. In practice, these technical initiatives contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. 


The process of environmental certification of terminals

Bolloré Africa Logistics is integrating ESG issues into its development strategy. From the direct impact of its activities to the indirect impact linked to the execution of its services, the company is innovating to reduce its carbon footprint and preserve biodiversity. This is demonstrated by the implementation of the "Green Terminal" certification program for its port terminals, audited by Bureau Veritas.


Our commitment

We have undertaken to equip our terminals with an entirely new certification process: "Green Terminal". We are pioneering this new certification, which is based on simple fundamentals in line with the Bollore Ports CSR (corporate social responsibility) policy to further reduce our carbon footprint.

The Bolloré Africa Logistics container terminals involved in the process will be audited every year by Bureau Veritas in order to receive a certificate of compliance. 


The Green Terminal certification is applicable to all new terminals and those that have undergone modernisation or extension. The methodology will be applied to all container terminals and scoring will give 4 certification levels (50% no star, one star from 65%, two stars from 80% and three stars from 90% and above). Terminals that do not obtain a minimum of 50% will not be able to be certified Green Terminal.
