Climate Action Plan

The Port of Vancouver USA is dedicated to the health of the economy, our community and the environment. For over 10 years, we have been working on sustainability initiatives through our WE CAN! Sustainability Program. As a member of our community, we are always looking for ways to improve and do more.

  • We support renewable energy by offsetting 100% of electricity use with renewable energy certificates & handling wind energy cargo

To that end, during the planning process for our 2018 Strategic Plan, the Port Commissioners identified developing a Climate Action Plan as a key strategy to achieve the port’s environmental goals.

A Climate Action Plan is a comprehensive plan that identifies specific actions that an organization (the port) can take to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.  Check out our FAQ page

This Climate Action Plan will provide the Commissioners and port staff with a menu of different actions that the port can take over the coming years to reduce GHG emissions and meet reduction goals.

In late 2020, the port hired a consultant team to begin the work of the Climate Action Plan. The consultants are experts in the fields of climate change analysis and planning, public involvement and transportation from three consulting firms: Ramboll, WSP USA and Fehr & Peers. Currently, the team is collecting and evaluating data for the port’s Climate Action Plan.

Project updates and notice of opportunities for public involvement will be provided across multiple platforms, including this webpage, news releases and the port’s social media channels.
