Action on Climate Change

Action on Climate Change

Climate change is affecting every country on every continent. It is disrupting national economies and affecting lives. Weather patterns are changing, sea levels are rising, and weather events are becoming more extreme.

The Paris Agreement, adopted in 2015, aims to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change by keeping a global temperature rise this century well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.

The consequences of climate change, such as sea level rises and changes in weather and storm frequency will impact ports.  Our Ports will need to strengthen resilience and adaptive capacity to meet these challenges.  Resilient design and effective port planning will be critical to our continued operation.

We will take action on climate change by:

  • Committing to a zero-carbon footprint
  • Adopting sustainable and resilient design for infrastructure

Greenhouse Gas emissions (GHG) and their effects on climate are recognised as a major contributor to climate change.  The National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Scheme (NGER) breaks down GHG emissions into three scopes.  By reducing scope 1 and scope 2 emissions our Ports can contribute to the reduction of CO2 in the atmosphere and make the world a healthier, happier place to live.

Taking action on climate change is not just the right thing to do but it also makes good business sense.

You can track our progress on our climate change initiatives through our dashboard.
