With the increasing emphasis on environmental sustainability, Paradip Port Trust has responded to ensure that operations are environmentally sustainable and committed to working towards improved environmental performance through focused action on the following areas: air quality, energy conservation and climate change, waste management, noise management, and water (both consumption and quality) management.
A further environmental concern is the need to reduce greenhouse gases. Sources of air pollution are a concern because of the potential harm to both port users and the health of people living close to the port. The port has taken up various schemes under the Green Port initiative programme.
The Port maintains an eco-friendly environment in the port area. More than eight lakh trees have been planted in an area of 250 hectares after super-cyclone of 1999. One lakh saplings are procured and planted every year inside the port area and the township.
PPT has provided 3 kms long net barrier with height of 12 mtrs in the periphery of the prohibited area for controlling air pollution caused by coal & iron ore dust.
Besides these various Parks, Gardens, Nurseries have been developed in and around the township for the benefit of Port Users, Employees and Public. Avenue plantation is made alongside the main roads connecting to different colonies of the Port. Port monitors the level of air pollution regularly and takes required steps to retain the pollution level within the permissible limit.
