VANCOUVER, B.C. – Port Metro Vancouver has again been ranked in Corporate Knights’ Future 40 Responsible Corporate Leaders in Canada for 2016.

“It’s fantastic to see our approach to sustainability being recognized once again,” said Robin Silvester, president and CEO at Port Metro Vancouver. “As a port authority, we always strive to facilitate Canada’s trade in a manner that is sustainable, protects the environment and allows our neighbouring communities to thrive.”

Launching in 2014, Corporate Knights takes into account 12 performance indicators, covering management of resources, employees and finances to determine those that are recognized.

The Future 40 began as a way to evaluate the sustainability performance of organizations and provide information to empower markets to foster a better world.

Port Metro Vancouver has also been recognized as a leader in sustainability by Sir Richard Branson and the Carbon War Room, having undertaken in such initiatives as shore power for container vessels and the Enhancing Cetacean Habitat and Observation program.
