People are aware of the fact that our port is located in the naturally rich UNESCO World Heritage area of the Wadden Sea. The port has therefore consciously opted for a strategy of sustainable growth with an eye for people and nature.
Core Values: Port of Den Helder is a professional, self-aware and learning organization with room for input, a personal responsibility, as a reliable partner, from mutual dependence and with an eye for sustainability.
PoDH was EcoPorts certified for the first time in 2015 and strives for continuous improvement of its environmental and environmental policy that is in line with the activities and competences of the port, and that is in line with market developments. For this we have identified the most important environmental aspects and set up relevant indicators to measure our progress. The indicators are also a means to further develop our environmental and environmental policy and to signal success or problem areas. PoDH is committed to a policy that meets international standards and where possible goes beyond strict compliance with international, European, Dutch or local legislation. For example, PoDH is working on corporate social responsibility.
Sharing information with other Wadden Sea ports to learn together and to improve our joint environmental and environmental policy.
PoDH strives for an environmental management system that is tailored to the socio-economic and ecological context of the port area and to adapt this to current events.
