Since 2015, the port authority has partnered with Vancouver-based social enterprise Climate Smart to help Port of Vancouver tenants conserve energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Through the Climate Smart program, businesses measure their total emissions by conducting a greenhouse gas inventory, and then identify ways to reduce those
emissions by creating a tailored reduction plan.
To date, 24 unique tenants have gone through the training and certification program, and 18 businesses have achieved Climate Smart certification, an annual process requiring businesses to submit an approved emissions reduction plan. In total, the Climate Action initiative has resulted in cumulative greenhouse gas emission reductions of 6,087 tonnes.
