PD Ports has partnered with a local charity to improve water and the habitat of the River Tees.

PD Ports CEO, Frans Calje, has been appointed Patron of the Tees Rivers Trust, as the port operator and charity join forces to deliver on shared ambitions to improve and conserve the water quality and habitat of the River Tees.

PD Ports says it is committed to playing its full role in supporting the communities and environment that surround the River; a priority which the Company sees as vitally important to the long-term success of the Tees region.

The Tees Rivers Trust was established in 2008 and is the only conservation body committed solely to the management and improvement of the whole of the Tees Catchment.

As PD Ports works towards achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2027, working with organisations like Tees Rivers Trust will go a long way in helping to achieve its future ambitions.
