Sustainable Design and Construction Guidelines for Ports

Representatives from seven West Coast port authorities and the International Institute for Sustainable Seaports (I2S2) have been developing tools to integrate sustainable best practices into port planning, design and construction of marine industrial development projects. Building on material developed by the Port of Long Beach, the Ports of Los Angeles, Long Beach, San Diego, Portland, Vancouver, Tacoma, and Seattle have worked collaboratively to create flexible sustainable design and construction guidelines for port infrastructure projects. The guidelines are intended to help ports identify opportunities to go beyond compliance in practicing sustainable industrial development. In addition to creating an initial product, these ports have recognized the importance of establishing an ongoing collaboration to update the tools and share experiences.
