GLADSTONE Ports Corporation has announced it has been shortlisted as a finalist for the International Association of Ports and Harbours sustainability awards for its community parklands project.
Approximately 37 ports from 21 countries across the globe submitted entries for the World Ports Sustainability Awards this year.
A judging panel of international experts have whittled down the selection of 200 entries to three finalists for each category, including GPC who is now in the top three for the Community Outreach and Port City Dialogue Social Dimension category.
Executive general manager for people and community, Rowen Winsor said GPC strives to be a leader in port sustainability.
“We feel very proud to be a finalist in such an enormous pool of entrants with high-level projects from across the globe,” she said.
“At GPC, we’ve been working tirelessly on emphasising social benefits and creating a positive impact on the environment.
“Economic, environmental and social sustainability underpin everything we do including developing a park network.
“We wish all the finalists the best of luck for the award ceremony.”
Winners from seven categories are expected to be announced during the IAPH World Ports Conference in June following a public vote.
