Port of Vancouver releases emissions study

port of vancouver

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority has released its third Port Emissions Inventory Report that indicates a decrease in air pollutant emissions since 2010, despite an increase in trade through the port - a result of stronger regulation and investment in technology. The port authority’s inventory report estimates air emissions from marine, rail, on-road, non-road and administrative activities associated with the Port of Vancouver. It complements regional and national emission inventories that capture other sources, such as commuter vehicles, buildings, and commercial activity, to provide a complete picture of emissions in the Lower Mainland. In addition to capturing detailed estimates of emissions by type in 2015, the report provides an emissions backcast and forecast, which helps to track how emissions have changed and are expected to change in the future.
