June 23, 2022, Halifax, Nova Scotia – The Halifax Port Authority is committed to continuously understanding and evaluating how sustainability is addressed. The third Sustainability Report for the Halifax Port Authority is now complete and has been posted publicly to the Port of Halifax website here. This report covers the years 2020 and 2021, providing updates on progress since the release of the initial 2017 Sustainability Report.

“Investing in sustainable projects, initiatives, and strategies that help us meet the needs of today without compromising the needs of tomorrow is essential for success. Our commitment to environmental protection and sustainability is deeply rooted in our commitment to this port, and the protection of the communities where we live and work,” said Captain Allan Gray, President and CEO, Halifax Port Authority. “As President & CEO, I believe we have an obligation to be leaders on this front and it is my responsibility to ensure sustainability is integrated into our approach to governance, leadership, collaboration, and is accounted for in all decision-making. We look forward to working together to build a more sustainable and resilient future as One Port City.”

The HPA is committed to incorporating sustainability into all aspects of our business. We are doing this by developing a framework linked to the United Nations Sustainability Development Goals that considers stakeholder interests and enables us to excel as a Port and strengthen our community.
