Port Metro Vancouver's commitment

Port Metro Vancouver is more than cranes, cargo, terminals, ships and international trade. The Port is also recognized globally as a naturally beautiful and clean port complemented by innovative environmental leadership. 

  • We recognize

    ...that both human and marine life depends on the protection of our physical environment. Our Port is home to hundreds of species of fish, crustaceans, birds and marine mammals. 
  • We are leading the way

    ...for other ports to address air quality and other environmental concerns by focusing on using technologies and promoting operational efficiencies to reduce environmental impacts. 
  • We are committed conducting operations in a responsible and sustainable manner that safeguards and promotes continual protection of the environment. 

Preserving the environment is a core value us. Our programs work to minimize impacts of port operations as well as enhance the surrounding environment. Learn more about how we are leaders in port sustainability through our environmental initiatives.

The Port's inhabitants

Creating marine habitats is one way that the Port works to lessen its impact on our marine environment and its inhabitants. In 1995 we built a reef under the waves at Cates Park, now inhabitated by octopus, rock fish, crabs, anemones and shrimp.
