Grieg Maritime Group
Improving Port Waste Management in the Philippines
The aim of the project is for WWF and the Grieg Group to cooperate to create concrete,scalable solutions to the plastic challengesin ports, to decrease and eventually stop plastic from entering the oceans. The project has the following deliverables: i) to provide input to the national action plan on marine litter and highlight the importance of the port industry inaddressing plastic pollution, ii)to reduce plastic waste leakage by 50% in at least 3 ports in the Philippines, and iii) to develop documentation to enable the scaling up in other ports in the Philippines and in the world.
Achievements in 2022
The second year of the project was the opportunity for the WWF-Philippines team to finalise the baseline studies for the three selected ports, as well as the national baseline study on the management of plastic waste in ports in the Philippines. These studies were a significant step to inform the development of action plans in the three ports and the selection of solutions to pilot to reduce plastic waste leakage.
