Environment protection

To meet European standards, the Port Authority of Šibenik has created conditions for improving and achieving higher standards in environmental protection. In this regard, the collection of hazardous and non-hazardous waste is organized within the port of Šibenik, and the maximum utilization of secondary raw materials is ensured.

Contracts have been signed with companies for waste management (metal waste, nylon, batteries, used motor oils, oil filters, and old car tires).

In accordance with legal regulations, all stationary sources of air pollution are reported, and projects are being developed to replace old technologies with new ones that are environmentally friendly and meet the strictest environmental criteria. Aware of the issue of environmental pollution, the Port Authority of Šibenik will continue to make efforts to preserve the environment, respecting the Law on Environmental Protection of the Republic of Croatia, as well as working systematically to harmonize with the standards of the European Union, and to follow modern ecological trends in the world.
