"Green is Not Just a Color" is being extensively promoted throughout our major terminals to increase environmental awareness amongst all our stakeholders. Click on the links below to view promotion material for our green vision.


Behind a successful environmental awareness policy is a sophisticated management system that incorporates sustainable development and environmental protection into the very core of business operations. At CMHI, our core business units are creating this system.

Shekou Container Terminals Ltd (SCT), our 4.5 million TEU facility in Western Shenzhen, has led the way in establishing an ISO 14000 accredited Environmental Management System that completely absorbs best practice principles for monitoring environmental performance and responsibility. SCT is proud to hold the status of being the first marine terminal in China to gain ISO 14000 recognition for its environmental achievements. Since its ISO award in August 2008, SCT has gone on to deliver the conversion of 80 per cent of its RTGs (Rubber Tyre Gantries) from diesel power to electricity (eRTG project) and reduce its RTG emissions by 90 per cent.

Chiwan Container Terminal (CCT), one of the largest terminals in Shenzhen, is well into the development of its ‘Green Terminal’ initiative and is due to gain ISO 14000 accreditation in September 2009. CCT has gained rapid development in its eRTG project and is one of the only terminals in China to self-develop and engineer its own ‘Oil to Electricity’ RTG installation. This technology is the first of its kind within the terminal environment and incorporates off-circuit overhead DC installations. By the end of 2009, CCT plans to complete the conversion of all of its RTGs from diesel to electric power and eliminate emissions from RTG operations.

CMPort and its marine terminals are actively pursuing opportunities to expand our Green Terminal network and facilities. We are working closely with shipping lines and logistics providers to establish best practices for environmental performance and improve the carbon footprint of the global supply chain.
