HOPA Ports has released its Summary Report of Sustainable Actions in 2020. The annual report outlines HOPA’s ongoing commitment to transparency, and explores what the port does, how it interacts with the community, and how decisions are made to support social, environmental and economic sustainability.

It is also an opportunity to celebrate successes. HOPA’s network of sustainable ports are the product of the hard work and collaboration of HOPA staff, neighborhood partners, non-profit organizations, government and industry colleagues.

Cover art for the 2020 Sustainability report was created by Oshawa artist, Dani Crosby.
