Vancouver Fraser Port Authority

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority has set a vision for the Port of Vancouver to be the world’s most sustainable port and is working towards a goal of phasing out all port-related emissions by 2050, as part of the Northwest Ports Clean Air Strategy.

“We are very pleased to become the first port authority to join this important global collaboration for sustainable shipping,” said Robin Silvester, chief executive officer and president of the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority. “We look forward to working alongside like-minded organizations from across the global maritime industry to advance our shared vision for more sustainable shipping – both at the Port of Vancouver and around the world.”

The Sustainable Shipping Initiative (SSI) is a multi-stakeholder initiative that brings together leading organizations with shared goals and equal determination in improving the sustainability of the shipping industry in terms of social, environmental and economic impacts.
