In honor of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, the Port of Seattle is taking major actions to achieve its Century Agenda goal to be the greenest and most energy-efficient port in North America. The Port announced in April that it will achieve its Century Agenda goal to reduce its carbon emissions by 50 percent in 2021, the result of a new renewable natural gas contract to replace fossil fuels used to heat the airport and power the airport bus fleet.

On April 28, the Port Commission will consider a request to authorize construction funding to build a new 13.5 acre park and public access site on the Duwamish River, which advances the Port’s Century Agenda goal to restore Duwamish River habitat. The Terminal 117 Habitat Restoration and Duwamish Shoreline Access Project supports urgent salmon recovery needs while addressing long-standing community needs for increased greenspace, described in Resolution 3767, the Port’s Duwamish Valley Community Benefits Commitment.
