THE Port Authority of NSW has achieved Bronze Partner status in the NSW Government’s Sustainability Advantage Program in recognition of its commitment and determination to embed sustainability across its six port locations.
Port Authority of NSW CEO, Captain Philip Holliday, said the achievement of Bronze Partner is a welcome acknowledgement of the organisation’s work and vision.
“We continue to work very hard to achieve sustainability in our business and our partnership with Sustainability Advantage is an important enabler on this journey,” Captain Holliday said.
“The path to Bronze Recognition began with the creation of our sustainability plan, developed during extensive consultation with our staff, so it authentically speaks to who we are and our staff feel genuine ownership of this goal.
“It marks a new and exciting chapter in our history, and we are driven by the opportunities it will create for our business as well as by the significant energy, waste and emissions reductions we will see as a result of implementation over the coming years.”
Department of Environment, Industry and Environment (DPIE) director of sustainability programs Mick O’Flynn congratulated the port authority on its new Bronze partnership.
“The Port Authority has started to implement actions within their sustainability plan and have recently participated in the development of a net zero pathway through the Sustainability Advantage program,” Mr O’Flynn said.
“I know Port Authority has already started to realise the potential this partnership will bring, and I look forward to following their sustainability journey to success.”
Port Authority of NSW has been a member of Sustainability Advantage since 2019. Sustainability Advantage is NSW Government’s flagship business support program partnering with large and medium organisations to raise ambition and accelerate action to achieve a sustainable transition to net zero emissions.
