In 2007, Former Port of Seattle CEO Tay Yoshitani communicated his vision for the Port of Seattle: to become the cleanest, greenest, most energy efficient port in the nation. Building on existing programs, the port has since established a reputation as the Green Gateway—offering the lowest carbon footprint for cargo shipped by sea and then rail from Asia to the Midwest. Just as important, the Green Gateway stands for the port’s commitment to environmental leadership and award-winning environmental efforts, both at the Seaport and at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
Today, we are guided by our commitment to be a model of sustainable growth, to seek the greatest environmental benefit from our efforts, to partner with other organizations to leverage financial and professional resources, to see our sustainable practices as a competitive advantage, and to share our environmental outcomes with the community we serve.
