Seaports Magazine - Spring 2017 - 27

Furthermore, environmental sustainability issues also continued to be
of particular importance, as climate
change poses a greater threat to the
ports of the region than in other parts
of the world. To this end, AAPA signed
a memorandum of understanding during the Congress with ECO Sustainable
Logistics Chain Foundation and six
Argentine ports - Bahía Blanca, Buenos
Aires, La Plata, Quequén, Rosario and
Villa Constitución - as well as the
Consejo Portuario Argentino to further
their commitment to sound environmental management.
ECO Sustainable Logistics Chain,
supported by AAPA, ESPO and
endorsed by Lloyd's Register, awards
the ECOPORTS certification to ports
in recognition of their use of environmentally sustainable business practices.

Three AAPA member ports in Latin
America have already achieved the
certification. In 2013, the Port of Santa
Marta in Colombia became the first port
outside of Europe to be awarded the
designation and was then joined by API
Ensenada, México, in August 2015. Most
recently API Lázaro Cárdenas, Mexico,
attained its ECOPORTS status in early
November 2016.
In addition, four candidates - Gerardo
Checre Adippe Guerra, ANP Uruguay;
Jorge Milton D'Angelo Pardo, ANP
Uruguay; Nestor Alberto Fernandez
Lettieri, ANP Uruguay; and Nolasco
Salazar, ENAPRO, Argentina - received
their PPM Latino certificates at
the Congress.
In order to commemorate the Latin
American Congress of Ports' silver anniversary, Guillermo Ruiz de Teresa, Head

of Mexico's Ports and Merchant Marine
and AAPA's 2015 Port Person of the Year,
presided over an awards ceremony during
the closing dinner that honored Agustín
Díaz of the Curaçao Ports Authority,
Armando Duarte of the Port of Santa
Marta, Valentín Morán of the Port of
Bahía Blanca and Raúl Urzúa of the Port
of Valparaíso for their past dedication
to AAPA's Latin American Delegation
and efforts in benefit of Western
Hemisphere ports.
Next year the Administración
Nacional de Puertos will be the host
of the 26th Latin American Congress of
Ports, which will take place in Punta del
Este, Uruguay.
Speaker presentations, photos and
the Declaration of Merida are now
available on the event's webpage:
