The Port District is among the first ports in the nation to adopt such a sustainability guide voluntarily. The plan passed unanimously on Tuesday, December 10, 2013.
Our region's changing climate is expected to affect San Diego Bay's waterfront property, recreation opportunities, and wildlife habitat. As an environmental steward of San Diego Bay, the Port of San Diego is developing a plan —the Climate Plan —to prepare for these impacts.
The goal of the Climate Plan is to help the Port identify, assess, and develop strategies that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and address local vulnerabilities to climate change. The Climate Plan will be a critical tool for future planning and development of Port Tidelands and will focus on a variety of strategies pertaining to sea level rise, water reuse and conservation, beach erosion, and energy demand.
This information describes the development of the Port’s Climate Plan. The Port appreciates your interest and encourages your participation in the Climate Plan development process.
The Port of San Diego has scheduled a public outreach meeting to receive input on the greenhouse gas portion of a Climate Mitigation and Adaptation Plan.
The workshop will take place on September 25, 2013 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Port of San Diego Administration Building, located at 3165 Pacific Highway, San Diego, CA 92101. Spanish translation services will be provided.
The Port of San Diego Board of Port Commissioners set an important environmental goal at its monthly meeting on Tuesday, June 12.
The Board voted in support of setting a target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions along the tidelands, managed by the Port District, by 10 percent by the year 2020. The reduction will be based on emissions from a 2006 baseline year.
The Board also set a target to further reduce emissions 25 percent by the year 2035. This is a milestone in the Port's work on its Climate Mitigation and Adaptation Plan, known as the Climate Plan.
