In addition to the continued desire to reduce environmental implications resulting from the operation of the Port of Ashdod, the legal requirements of laws and regulations customary in Israel, as well as international treaties to which Israel is a partner, are strictly observed.
In addition, environmental considerations include reference to legislative activities in matters of environmental quality that relate to the operation of the port that will enable optimization between the port’s efficient operation and maintaining environmental quality.
The management of the Port of Ashdod pays great attention to the prudent use of natural resources such as land, sea, water and fuels while limiting the creation of waste and encouraging the use of recyclable products.
The main force for the protection of the quality of the environment is the workers of the port and the contractors operating in it, which enjoy training and qualification to increase the awareness and commitment to the environment. Policy with regard to the environment is one of transparency regarding providing information that enables fruitful communication with the relevant authorities and statutory organs as well as the public, in the field of protection of the quality of the environment.
Three central projects in the area of environmental quality are; feeding the shores with sand, prevention of sea contamination during the loading of bulk ships and the prevention of contamination during the unloading.
