The president of the Balearic Islands Port Authority (APB), Francesc Antich, presented the economic state of the organisation today at a press conference with regard to the figures of the 2021 repo
The APB Board of Directors has approved the Environmental Policy of the public body. As the management body of the five ports of general interest in the Balearic Islands (Alcudia, Palma, Mahon, Ibiza and La Savina), the APB aims to focus its course of action on the concept of "Green Port", in other words, promoting the sustainability and protection of the public domain of the port, its surroundings and heritage, biodiversity and ecosystems, within the scope of its activities and its capacity for control in accordance with its responsibilities and competencies. Aware of this reality and responsive to it, the APB has approved its Environmental Policy in which all agents of the Port Community pertaining to the ports it manages are included in these sustainable management responsibilities, so as to properly preserve and protect natural resources and the environment. In all of its action, this policy aims to reduce the impact on the environment and reach a harmonious balance between progress and respect for nature. By following this protocol of action, workers agree to, amongst other things, protect the heritage and resources available, the marine environment and the environment of the port surroundings, and also establish communication channels and dialogue among all stakeholders and contribute to promoting environmental training and education among the staff of the institution, among other aspects. The approval of this regulation is a step closer to the ISO 14001 certification which the APB aims to achieve in the coming months.
