Conakry Terminal, a subsidiary of Bolloré Ports and operator of the container terminal of the
Autonomous Port of Conakry, has been granted the Green Terminal label following the audit conducted
on 12 November 2021 by Bureau Veritas. This label rewards the efforts made by the company to reduce
the impact of its activities on the environment by implementing eco-responsible measures.

The audit was conducted by Bureau Veritas experts and based on the eight pillars of the labeling
process, which includes work processes, building infrastructures that comply with international standards,
acquiring environmentally friendly handling equipment, waste management, and training employees in
best practices related to environmental issues.

Conakry Terminal is participating in the fluidity of the supply chain for Guinea and the countries of the
sub-region through its commitment to a program to modernize its infrastructures. The company has
introduced a number of innovative solutions, such as the digitalization of transport documents and
electronic payment, which help to reduce travel and therefore greenhouse gas emissions. Each year,
the company also undertakes solidarity initiatives in key sectors such as health and education.

“Being granted this label constitutes recognition of the efforts of all the employees of Conakry Terminal.
It has given us the opportunity to organize several training courses on best practices related to
environmental issues for our employees, which complement and reinforce our actions as for recycling,
dematerialization of documents or electrification of handling equipment. We will continue our efforts to
further reduce the environmental impact of our activities”
, explains Emmanuel Masson, Managing
Director of Conakry Terminal.
