April 11 Meeting
The Commission set new, higher goals for the Port to cut its greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030 and be carbon neutral, or carbon negative, by 2050. Commissioners also authorized a program that provides baggage transfers between the Smith Cove cruise terminal and the airport, freeing passengers from their luggage and enabling them to sightsee before they need to catch their flight home. In addition, the Commission was briefed about the 18 organizations from across the state receiving funds to support tourism marketing in 2017.

Century Agenda: Our plan for the future
Starting in 2008, three years in advance of the its 100th birthday, the Port of Seattle began creating a “Century Agenda” — building a comprehensive vision and strategic plan that focuses on the port’s next quarter-century of business and operations.
The goal of the Century Agenda is to build upon the accomplishments of the past century with a visionary look forward to the emerging challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. This Commission-led process includes port employee engagement, public outreach opportunities and planning with the major lines of business. Watch a short Century Agenda video here.
