Port collaboration delivers better air
Port Metro Vancouver and two Washington State ports are making significant progress in a cross-border effort to reduce port-related emissions in the Georgia Basin.
Working collaboratively by way of the Northwest Ports Clean Air Strategy, Port Metro Vancouver and the ports of Seattle and Tacoma have been working on ways to improve air quality and reduce contributions to climate change in all aspects of port operations for three years.
"By working with our port colleagues, both locally and across the border, Port Metro Vancouver is really making a difference in reducing air emissions that affect air quality and climate change," said Robin Silvester, president and CEO of Port Metro Vancouver. "Continuous improvement in our environmental performance is good for our communities, and our customers and stakeholders."
The three Pacific Northwest ports have made significant improvement by focusing on clean air goals for ships, cargo-handling equipment, rail, trucks, harbour craft and port administration through cooperative relationships with customers, tenants, and regulatory agencies. This is according to the recent Northwest Ports Clean Air Strategy 2010 Implementation Report.
In support of the Northwest ports' common goals, Port Metro Vancouver is taking a direct role through its EcoAction Program, Blue Circle Award, Truck Licensing Program and the award-winning shore power installation at Canada Place.
