Port Metro Vancouver recognized as a sustainability leader

March 31, 2016

Port Metro Vancouver once again recognized as a responsible leader in sustainability by Corporate Knights. For the third year in a row, Port Metro Vancouver has been ranked among Corporate Knights’ 2016 Future 40 Responsible Corporate Leaders in Canada. The methodology for the ranking takes into account 12 key performance indicators covering management of resources, employees and finances. “It’s fantastic to see our approach to sustainability being recognized once again,” said Robin Silvester, President and Chief Executive Officer at Port Metro Vancouver. “As a port authority, we always strive to facilitate Canada’s trade in a manner that is sustainable, protects the environment and allows our neighbouring communities to thrive.” The Future 40 ranking began in 2014 to evaluate the sustainability performance of organizations, offering information to empower markets to foster a better world. In 2015 the port authority announced initiatives such as shore power for container vessels and the ECHO Program, the latter of which aims to better understand and manage the impact of shipping activities on at-risk whales throughout the southern coast of British Columbia.
