Ports North has released its first sustainability strategy, based on United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals but with a Far North Queensland flavour.

The strategy outlines a path for the organisation to continue supporting environmental stewardship, community partnerships and economic prosperity throughout Far North Queensland.

“Operating at the intersection of two World Heritage-listed sites like the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest, protection of the environment and cultural heritage has long been paramount for our ports,” Ports North chief executive officer Chris Boland said.

“I’m immensely proud that our inaugural Sustainability Strategy recognises our existing achievements, while incorporating ideas and feedback from more than 100 port customers, employees, local industry representatives and community members to determine future priorities.

“Just as our stunning Far North Queensland region is unique, Ports North is unique among many other port authorities, too.”

Ports North said the strategy built on flagship projects such as the Cairns Shipping Development Project and Cairns CityPORT and leading practice environmental monitoring.

It establishes goals and sets actions across four key sustainability pillars of people, planet, partnerships and prosperity.

The organisation used the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals to guide its strategy, flagging actions across climate, water, waste, energy, technology, infrastructure and development, among other areas.

Ports North operates nine ports in Far North Queensland including Port of Cairns, Port of Mourilyan and Port of Karumba.
