Port Metro Vancouver is developing a Sustainability Vision and Strategy to help lead the Vancouver Gateway. Building on the Port 2050 scenario planning, we are identifying the steps we must take to prepare for our anticipated future. This input will help us develop a vision and strategy that reflects the diverse perspectives within the region, and fulfill our mandate to facilitate trade for Canadians through sustainable development of the Gateway.
The objectives of the initiative are to:
- Develop a common internal understanding of the Port’s sustainability context.
- Create a sustainability vision that is supported by our people, and that gains support from the Port’s customers, stakeholders, communities, First Nations and various levels of government.
- Create a sustainability strategy to move the Port toward our vision.
- Develop a plan for integrating sustainability considerations into our day-to-day business activities.
We are offering multiple opportunities for engagement, with a broad range of activities across the region. The External Advisory Panel will involve representatives from industry, non-government organizations, First Nations, government, academics and communities. We will host workshops and events, in addition to offering PortTalk as an opportunity for online discussion and input.
