HOPA Ports is proud to present its Summary Report of Sustainability Actions in 2021.The report outlines HOPA’s ongoing commitment to transparency, and explores what the port does, how it interacts with our community, and how decisions are made to support social, environmental and economic sustainability. It is also an opportunity to celebrate our successes. HOPA’s network of sustainable ports are the product of the hard work and collaboration of our HOPA staff, neighbourhood partners, non-profit organizations, government and industry colleagues.

Sustainability Highlights:
