Dublin Port Company has purchased the first Renault EEV (Enhanced Environmentally Friendly) Vehicle introduced into Ireland to help reduce fuel consumption and emissions within the port estate. Reducing fuel consumption has been a focus this year and all DPC buildings are being managed to minimise the use of our limited natural resources and so driving down emissions. This is yet another example of DPC’s commitment to Sustainable Development as we work alongside our partners in the International Association of Ports and Harbours in the implementation of voluntary international commitments under the World Ports Climate Initiative. At the same time all staff have been working together and adopting new waste recycling measures, this has resulted in a fifty-eight per cent reduction in waste to land fill in the past year.
