Safety & Environment Committee

“Injuries, loss of life and avoidable damage to the environment are still commonplace in port and terminal operations worldwide. We believe this is unacceptable because technologies exist that can dramatically improve safety and facilitate the development of greener ports. Our common aim as port equipment and technology experts is to help reduce injuries, damages and enable better risk management as well to minimize environmental impact.”

Lars Meurling, VP Marketing and Product Business Development, Bromma
PEMA Safety & Environment Committee Chair

In recognition of their common aims, the PEMA Environment Committee and the PEMA Safety Committee were merged to form The PEMA Safety & Environment Committee in 2015.

The mission of the PEMA Safety & Environment Committee is to provide a neutral information and education platform on the development and use of safer and greener technologies in the port and terminal industries. As part of this effort, the Committee works with other port and cargo handling associations, as well as individual companies, to keep abreast of the latest trends and initiatives, and inform PEMA members and the wider community accordingly.

The Safety & Environment Committee brings together an exceptionally wide variety of experience and knowledge from the global port equipment and technology communities. Because of this scope, it is well-positioned to introduce the practical elements of its work to a broad range of ports, manufacturers and other stakeholders concerned with achieving excellence in port and terminal safety and sustainability.
