Seaports are working to identify solutions that enhance our coastal resources and reduce environmental impact.  AAPA’s members are proactively working to enhance the air, water and land of the coastal environment. Through partnerships and independent projects, seaports are working to reduce air emissions, find solu­tions to the challenge of aquatic invasive species, and protect and create wildlife habitats.

Seaports are comprehensively managing their environmental impact on an ongoing basis by developing policies and goals that address the seaports’ commitment to the environment. Seaports are including stakeholders in planning and problem-solving while also informing community members and involving government agencies to help find solutions and craft a vision for the future that benefits seaports, their neighbors and port workers.
