Our vision is to be the world’s most sustainable port. To help us meet this vision, tenants at the Port of Vancouver are invited to participate in the Climate Smart program: helping them to reduce energy, fuel and waste, along with associated operating costs.
Climate Smart helps local businesses reduce their carbon footprint while cutting costs. Through three half-day training sessions, our web-based software application, and one-on-one advising, you’ll develop strategies to save on energy costs, improve operational efficiencies and engage employees. Learn more about what we do.
Climate Smart trains key staff and provides businesses with the support to become more competitive in an era of carbon regulation and volatile energy prices. In a collaborative learning environment, your staff will draw on the experience of other businesses and apply tools to measure and profitably reduce your greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Learn more about how it works.
