For the SPIPB, environmental challenges are very important and this preoccupation is reflected in Bécancour’s port operations.
With several partners, in 2008, the Port participated in the creation of Alliance verte, which is an association aiming to strengthen environmental management and community respect in the maritime industry. First implemented in Quebec, Alliance verte is now present and acclaimed worldwide for its environmental achievements.
With the goal of continuous improvement, the SPIPB continues its implementation of environmental management principles at the Bécancour’s port. With its sustainable development action plan, the SPIPB engaged itself in applying a new environmental management policy over the next few years that will aim to enforce port users towards responsible and sustainable operations.
