Environmental Leadership

Protect and enhance the environment of Commencement Bay and the Puyallup River by continuing to clean up contaminated land, improve habitat and water quality, and minimize air emissions from Port operations.

Environmental stewardship is integrated into all aspects of the organization, from our development activities to the ongoing operations of the Port and our customers.


Remediate contaminated Port properties in a manner that ensures protection of human health and the environment while enabling economic development.
Reduce the air and climate pollution generated by Port and tenant activities while protecting their operations from the impacts of climate change.
Invest in projects that improve the quality of stormwater runoff from Port properties, embody best practices and empower our tenants to comply with complex permits.
Create wetland opportunities and improve fish habitat independent of regulatory obligation.
