Green Port Month

Port Environment

Green Port Month: Celebrate Clean Air, Blue Water and Vibrant Life

Port Environment champions the safekeeping and environmental care of our dynamic waterfront. The Port of San Diego is a leader in protecting our air, water, and land and ensuring it remains a vital resource for generations to come. Green Port Month is a time to celebrate the Port’s environmental efforts including: 

  • Clean Air - a key priority supported with a variety of initiatives from alternative-fuel vehicles, shore power, and other clean energy efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Blue Water - vital to the port and our entire community, healthy water quality is maintained with proactive efforts to reduce contaminants and manage storm water runoff, keeping the bay healthy and sustainable. 
  • And finally Vibrant Life – preserving and improving quality of life for the people, animals and plant-life that call the bay home.
