Environmental Stewardship

We are part of the solution.

Environmental stewardship isn’t just about protecting shoreland properties, wildlife habitat, and public parks. It encompasses all issues related to the challenges of sustainability. We carefully study all of the impacts of a thriving economy to mitigate unintended negative impacts, including pollution (air, water, noise) and infrastructure wear and tear. As a result, dozens of innovative programs have emerged thanks to an array of creative, problem-centered partnerships and collaborations that work to identify, quantify, and meet these challenges. And, these same environmental interventions can be applied worldwide to help save energy, conserve precious, finite natural resources, and reduce our carbon footprint for future generations.

Here are some of the Port’s people and programs that are making a difference:
