Our Sustainable Development Agenda (SDA)


Since 2008, our environmental integration is a major priority. In November 2008, Guadeloupe Port Caribbean has adopted an ambitious Sustainable Development Program for a total amount of €500,000 over the 2009-2011 period. It is part of the preparation of reducing and countervailing measures under major port development projects.

From this perspective, the SDA has declined around several broad guidelines in the last three years:

the Inert waste storage facility (ISDI);


achieving the first Carbon Footprint;

supporting initiatives for environmental protection;

Research help

the study of water circulation in the Petit Cul-de-Sac Marin;

Renewable energies of the Sea;

the Underwater archeology;

the protection of the Reef;

Preservation and management of natural areas of Jarry.

Today, concrete actions have been identified and will be conducted in the district of Guadeloupe Port Caraïbes, as part of ecological innovations programs in the areas of biodiversity and energy, by the implementation of actions with associations, institutional and local partners.

Therefore, Guadeloupe Port Caraïbes wished to renew its commitment to continuing the implementation of this program for the 2012-2014 period on the basis of a € 565,000 budget over 3 years. So it's an overall budget of more than € 1 million which is spent by the institution for sustainable development.

Guadeloupe Port Caraïbes is continuing its environmental action, declining the themes of the National Strategy for Sustainable Development (NSSD) and the Grenelle de la Mer, around 5 major themes:

water and waste management;

climate change and energy;

natural resources, heritage and environmental protection;

land and living environment management;

eco-responsibility, cooperation and labeling.
