Sustainable Port

The commitment of society today to sustainability is driving the entire economy towards a more sustainable development.

For this reason the Environmental Strategy of the Port Authority of Gijón (PAG) is focused on making the Port of Gijón an environmental reference port at the national and European level, thus improving its competitiveness in the sector and providing the port with the added value of sustainable management.

The fundamental pillar for the development of this Environmental Strategy is its Environmental Policy defined in the framework of its Environmental Management System, which allows it to identify its most significant environmental impacts and act on them by continuously improving the environmental management of the organization. Among these, air quality is for the Port of Gijón, main bulk carrier port of Spain, a priority objective.

In order to identify and control the environmental quality of its environment, PAG has established and implemented the Port of Gijón Environmental Surveillance Plan.
