Climate Action Plan
In 2013, the Port adopted a Climate Action Plan to provide a long-term vision for sustainability by decreasing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The Port aims to reach a GHG emission reduction of 10% by 2020 by decreasing emissions through transportation and land use, energy conservation and efficiency, alternative energy generation, clean transportation, water conservation, and waste reduction.
On Track to Meet 2020 Goal
With a 2020 goal to reduce GHG emissions 10% relative to a 2006 baseline, we are well on our way to meeting our near-term target. Based on activities which occurred in 2016, GHG emissions have decreased 13% since 2006. Beyond 2020, the Port will need to align long term goals with State GHG reduction targets of a 40% reduction by 2030 and a 80% reduction by 2050.
