The Port of Vancouver is located in a naturally beautiful setting, and we want to keep it that way.
Protecting the environment is part of our mandate as a Canada Port Authority, and our vision is for the Port of Vancouver to be the world’s most sustainable port. To us, a sustainable port supports a healthy environment, economic prosperity through trade, and thriving communities.
Our environmental specialists work with the port community, scientists, governments and Indigenous groups to develop and run programs that help protect the air, lands and waters in and around the Port of Vancouver. This includes promoting climate action and supporting healthy environments, as we work to advance responsible practices in infrastructure and throughout the global supply chain.
Our vision for the Port of Vancouver to be the world’s most sustainable port is ambitious and will take time, innovation and collaboration to achieve. Learn about the programs and initiatives that are helping to protect our environment.
