Protecting water quality
Water is an integral part of our environment, and we recognize the need to protect the unique ecosystem in which we operate.
We strive to keep our waterways clean by preventing pollution in the first place, educating tenants on the importance of protecting our water resources and pioneering new technologies.
Managing stormwater runoff is a key component of our efforts to protect our waterways.
We are committed to minimizing pollutants from entering the stormwater system. We are actively implementing new programs and technologies to reduce the environmental impact on Commencement Bay.

We joined with the City of Tacoma, SSA Marine and the University of Washington to endow the Port of Tacoma Chair at the University of Washington Tacoma to lead research at the Center for Urban Waters. Research priorities include bioremediation, aquaculture and invasive species control.
