As the world becomes more aware of the impact of human activities on the environment, businesses need to play a role in protecting the planet. For Portico, this means implementing sustainability and environmental measures that reflects the company’s commitment to minimising our environmental impact at a global and local level, alongside promoting a more sustainable future.
Portico is a key player in the ports and logistics industry. We recognise the critical role we play in the global supply chain, and we know what impact our operations can have on the environment. To this end, we are committed to developing and implementing sustainable practices that reduce our carbon footprint, minimise waste and pollution, and support the transition to a low-carbon economy.
These sustainability and environmental measures will guide Portico’s efforts to achieve our goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2030. This also aligns us with Portsmouth International Port’s ambitions and Portsmouth City Council’s climate goals.
Through collaboration with stakeholders, including customers, suppliers, and employees, Portico will work to build a more sustainable future and contribute to the fight against climate change.

- Port equipment switched to hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO), bringing a CO2 reduction of 90%
- Electricity supply upgraded by 10MVa so we can power more port equipment from the grid
- Our electric-ready mobile crane is connected to the power supply
- An electric gantry crane replaces our remaining HVO powered mobile cranes
- Wind turbines installed, generating more renewable energy
