New Energy and Sustainability Policy Committee at the Port of Seattle

January 16, 2016

The Port of Seattle Commission established the Energy and Sustainability Policy Committee at the end of January to develop and propose new environmental initiatives across the organization.

By creating this committee, the port aims at concentrating its efforts more strategically to promote green energy uses and reduce greenhouse gasses across all lines of its operations.

The Port of Seattle has already taken many actions to reduce GHG, including adoption of the Northwest Ports Clean Air Strategy (in collaboration with Port Metro Vancouver, Port of Tacoma, and the NorthWest Seaport Alliance), which has a goal to reduce GHG emissions by 20 percent per ton of cargo moved through the Seaport by 2020.
