Summary

Read the public statement by the Belgian NCP concluding this specific instance - 11 March 2011


In March 2009 the Belgian NCP received a request for review by a Greenpeace India alleging that Dredging International had breached the environment provisions of the Guidelines with the Dhamra Port Project in India.

After conducting an initial assessment the NCP concluded that neither the Belgian authorities or Dredging International has been involved in the inception of the Dhamra Port Project. Moreover the Belgian company had proved that it had taken every possible measure to execute the dredging works in a correct and environmentally-friendly way.
