Port of Vancouver USA Launches Climate Action Plan Webpage

The Port of Vancouver USA furthered its efforts to address greenhouse gas emissions this week when it kicked off its Climate Action Plan webpage.

The webpage allows the public to weigh in on ways to curb greenhouse gases via online feedback form - which is open through April 9 and also available in Spanish - and gives details about the port’s Climate Action Plan, what types of emissions the plan will address, what has already been done to lower emissions and other related information.

“The Climate Action Plan is one more step in the port’s continuing commitment to environmental stewardship,” said Port CEO Julianna Marler. “We value input from the public and look forward to hearing their ideas about how the port can reduce its GHG emissions.”

The port has been moving forward on these efforts. A consultant team was hired late last year to work on the document and is teaming with the port to collect and review data that will be incorporated into an implementation plan, according to the port.
