Environment & Infrastructure

As outlined in its Strategic Plan, the Port of Cleveland is committed to incorporating environmental sustainability best practices across port activities and public policy advocacy.  We are dedicated to creating a dynamic urban core that balances work and recreation on Cleveland’s waterfronts.

The Port of Cleveland is committed to conducting its operations in a sustainable manner and has been a Green Marine participant since 2007.  Green Marine is an environmental certification program for the North American marine industry dedicated to advancing environmental excellence. The program stems from a voluntary initiative by the maritime industry to exceed regulatory requirements. Green Marine is a rigorous, transparent and inclusive program that targets prioritized environmental issues such as greenhouse gases, community impacts, and water and land pollution.  To receive certification the Port must benchmark annual environmental performance through the program’s exhaustive self-evaluation guides, have the results verified, and agree to publication of individual results.
