Port of San Diego
Member Since: 2010
The Port of San Diego is the fourth largest of the 11 ports in California and serves as an economic engine, an environmental steward of San Diego Bay and the surrounding tidelands, and a provider of community services and public safety.
With its successful Green Port Program and a progressive Climate Action Plan aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions and addressing local vulnerabilities to climate change, the Port is leader in the adoption of sustainable business practices and a vital member of CleanTECH San Diego.
The Climate Action Plan is a critical tool for future planning and development of Port Tidelands and focuses on a variety of strategies pertaining to sea level rise, water reuse and conservation, beach erosion, and energy demand.
The Port also demonstrates its pioneering spirit for sustainability as a key participant in San Diego’s smart city initiatives. Using the Internet of Things to collect information about the energy usage, the Port is actively working with regional partners, including Cleantech San Diego, to connect buildings as a single operational system, which will inform energy efficient behaviors, lower individual and collective energy consumption and costs, and establish critical load reduction across the board.
