What’s good for the environment is good for all of us.
At the Port of Vancouver USA, we measure success in many ways—none more vital than our ability to keep our air, land and water clean. In fact, we’ve made ecological responsibility central to how we do business. We believe that environmental stewardship and economic development can co-exist, and as community citizens, we are committed to preserving natural spaces and managing resources wisely. We do this through:
- Integrated Decision Making – We incorporate environmental costs, risks, impacts and benefits into our business choices, operating decisions and facility planning.
- Sustainability – We maximize the use of sustainable resources in the construction and operation of our facilities and the delivery of our services, formalizing our efforts with the “We Can!” project.
- Pollution Prevention – We avoid contamination of property through best management practices and effective safeguarding programs; and we continue to efficiently remediate historical cleanup sites.
- Compliance – We meet or exceed regulatory requirements in the construction and operation of our facilities and delivery of our services.
