Relying on both land and sea and serving as commercial centers, ports have always represented our human instinct to transform the earth to meet our needs. More than ever we are compelled to bring a new consciousness and a deeper wisdom to this instinct. With global forces acting on the ecology and economy of our planet, it seems highly appropriate that the Port of San Francisco should work to mitigate global climate change and strive to be truly sustainable. To meet this commitment, the Port has dedicated a staff of professionals to bring an environmental awareness into all of the Port’s business activities.
The Port’s Strategic Plan 2016-2021 articulates seven goals that provide a vision for enhancing the Port’s integration of the waterfront with the City. Sustainability is the fifth goal with a strategy, “to limit climate change and secure a broad environmental stewardship, implement sound sustainability practices for all aspects of the Port and San Francisco Bay.”
