For several years now, Nantes − Saint Nazaire Port has been committed to a process of continual improvement, based on listening to internal and external customers, on understanding their expectations, and on identifying and meeting their requirements. Building on the progress achieved, at the end of 2011 the Port Authority instituted an integrated QHSE (Quality, Health & Safety, Environment) management system.
Reducing the environmental footprint of our activities
Being committed to energy and ecological transition on the Loire Estuary, Nantes − Saint Nazaire Port bases its environmental actions on the ECOPORTS environmental standard, the environmental management system quality label awarded to European ports that put in place "good practices" as regards sustainable development. Studies, equipment, management plans for natural spaces, regular awareness-raising of personnel and assistance for customers all represent the means employed to reduce the environmental impact and to improve the sustainability of port-related activities.
