ISO 14001

On 14th January 2016, CILSA, a public company which manages the ZAL Port of the Port of Barcelona, received the environmental management system ISO 14001:2004 certificate issued by Bureau Veritas Certification, because of its compliance with the highest environmental standards in the management of the Logistics Activities Zone of the Port of Barcelona, for the maintenance and upkeep of common areas.

The main axis of the project to get the certification was based on the design of the ZAL Port of the Port of Barcelona's environmental policy, which reflect the commitments and objectives of the company which from the start of this/its logistics development until this time it had exercised voluntarily by promoting good practice and ethical management and by maintaining its position as a reference as being pioneers in this respect.

The certificate confirms that the ZAL Port of the Port of Barcelona, complies with the requirements established by the standard ISO 14001 and that it has implemented an environmental management system that helps to prevent environment impacts, minimize the consumption of non-renewable energy and promote the use of the best technology  available.

Highlights of this system of environmental improvement, - among others - are aspects as relevant as the optimization of waste, minimization of the impact of activities and facilities, the investigation of environmental incidents that occur or environmental emergency response and the latest measures such as the replacement of street lighting of the ZAL Port with LED lighting, that allows substantial energy savings by making efficient use of energy. In addition to that it greatly reduces CO₂ emissions.

The process of implantation of the environmental management system has been developed by our own staff, it includes the training and awareness-raising of workers and fostering the culture of respect and commitment to the environment.

With this environmental certification, a process which was initiated in 2015 comes to a close and serves as a basis  which CILSA can incorporate into its policy of environmental management within its areas of responsibility.
