Environmental management system

ISO 14001 Certification

TCP was one of the first companies in Brazil to implement an Environmental Management System certified by the ABNT ISO 14001 Standard. In Paranaguá, it was the precursor, complying with the provision established in the concession agreement.

The company saw significant value in the true implementation of an Environmental Management System and from 2005, shortly after ISO 14001 certification, intensified its internal and external performance.

The company seeks to ensure that the entire content of ISO 14001 is understood by its employees as an integral part of strategic policy. We adopt in our corporate governance the essence of seeking to meet all the predicates set forth in our environmental policy.

In 2018, the company was recommended to carry out the transition from the standard to the 2015 version, as it meets the requirements for the full operation of the Environmental Management System, which has the formal scope “Container Maritime Terminal Management”.

This certification is an important indicator of TCP’s ability to provide services that meet customer needs and expectations. In addition, TCP meets the requirements for the full operation of the Quality Management System, the formal scope of which is “Management of the maritime container terminal”.

ISO 9001 certification brings various benefits to the business, such as:

  • Continuous improvement of processes and products;
  • Increased customer satisfaction;
  • Reduced costs and waste;
  • Greater efficiency and productivity;
  • Strengthening the company’s image and reputation in the market.

For us, ISO 9001 is not just a seal of quality, but a commitment to our customers and partners.
