Jan Fransen (Managing Director of the Green Award Foundation) travelled to New Zealand to attend the ports’ CEO’s meeting on 17 February 2010.
Currently three New Zealand ports provide incentives to Green Award certified vessels. Recently Port Nelson joined the ports of Taranaki and Wellington that had been already participating in the Green Award program.
At this bi-annual CEO’s meeting Mr. Fransen handed over the Green Award plaque and flag to the Port Nelson representative. Both the Port of Taranaki (New Plymouth) and the port of Wellington received the new style plaque for partnering in the program.
We hope that more New Zealand ports will follow this example of leadership in addressing Corporate Social responsibility.
