AQABA — Aqaba Container Terminal (ACT), a gateway to Jordan and beyond, recently announced receiving “ISO 14001:2015”certification. This certificate is an international standard for an environmental management system (EMS) that helps businesses, such as ACT control and improves practices that are potentially harmful to the environment.

Coming after years of dedicated work necessitating collaboration among the environmental steering committee, managerial staff and employees, ACT obtained not only an “ISO 14001:2015”certificate but also official certification of its streamlined EMS. ACT is the only company operating in Jordan to have received the 2015 version of ISO 14001, as well as the only port to administer an ISO-certified EMS.

Commenting on the occasion, ACT Chief Exicutive Jeppe Jensen said, “for us, it is a driver by which ACT can enact even more positive environmental change, remaining dedicated to what is truly important: effectively managing responsible business practices that seek to limit negative environmental impact through control of greenhouse gas emissions and other potentially harmful actions.”
