Green Port Program earns Port of San Diego an award

The Port of San Diego's Green Port Program was recognized this month for its work toward preserving natural resources, taking one of the California Green Summit's 2014 Green California Leadership Awards.

The award was presented at an April 8 reception at the summit, an annual conference that highlights policies, programs, strategies and technologies implemented to preserve California's natural resources. It was presented in the Green Economic Development category, which recognizes sustainability measures that also promote economic growth.

Bob Nelson, chairman of the Board of Port Commissioners, said the Green Port Program, and especially the Port's Climate Action Plan -- adopted in December 2013 -- demonstrate the Port's commitment to San Diego Bay and its tidelands.

"Business by business, we are demonstrating that environmental responsibility goes hand in hand with a robust waterfront economy," he said.

Established in 2008, the Green Port Program includes initiatives that help the Port and its tenants conserve water and energy, decrease their waste and reduce emissions around San Diego Bay.
