Killybegs Harbour Centre 
Environmental Policy Statement


Owned and operated by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Killybegs Harbour Centre is the newest sheltered deep-water facility on Ireland's west coast. Already established as Ireland's premier fishing harbour, a new €50 M pier opened in 2004 and provides opportunity for growth in the commercial cargo and
cruise liner markets. The port caters for vessels up to 250 m long, at 40,000 tonnes dead weight,
to a maximum low water draft of 12 m.
Cargoes include fresh/frozen fish; dry bulk; break bulk; manufactured goods and heavy lifts;
oil and gas exploration modules and supplies; containers; fuels and other general cargo.

 

Killybegs Harbour Centre is committed to maintaining a prosperous port while honouring its community and environmental responsibilities in an open and transparent manner.
As such, environmental management is a prominent business consideration and the implementation of an Environmental Management System a key strategic best practice commitment.
Killybegs Harbour Centre provides port-wide leadership on the need to minimise environmental impacts and promotes sustainable principles. We are committed to:

 

  • maintaining an Environmental Management System compliant with European Sea Ports Organisation ECOPORTS criteria and compatible with ISO 14001
  • regulatory compliance and implementing relevant industry codes of practice
  • pollution prevention through operational best practice, emissions management, waste minimisation, efficient resource use, and local conservation awareness
  • setting objectives and targets to achieve continual environmental performance improvement within the context of a systematic management programme
  • communicating this environmental policy to our employees and providing appropriate training
  • the public availability of our environmental policy and supporting local community liaison
  • public reporting on environmental performance

Killybegs Harbour Centre management actively supports this policy.
