Committed to opportunity, equity and livable communities
Founded in 1911, the Port of Seattle is a special purpose municipal corporation serving the citizens of King County; its mission is to create good jobs here and across the state by advancing trade and commerce, promoting manufacturing and maritime growth, and stimulating economic development.
Our vision is to add 100,000 jobs through economic growth led by the Port, for a total of 300,000 port-related jobs in the region, while reducing our environmental footprint. We are committed to creating opportunity for all, stewarding our environment responsibly, partnering with surrounding communities, promoting social responsibility, conducting ourselves transparently, and holding ourselves accountable.
The Port’s businesses and actions benefit the community and the region in many ways, but our operations also have impacts on nearby communities. Through ongoing community outreach efforts and educational engagement opportunities, the Port focuses on building relationships and fostering partnerships with a commitment to being a good neighbor.
