Environmental Leadership at PRPA means a commitment to accurate and transparent engagement, the well-being of the community in which we live and work, and ensuring that growth is sustainable through collaboration.
PRPA and Port industry partners work together to ensure sustainable growth at the Port of Prince Rupert though a number of initiatives like its active Sustainability Committee, industry participation in the Green Marine program, and recognition of sustainable operators through PRPA’s Green Wave recognition program.
We at PRPA are proud of our third-party certification achievements. For example, PRPA became the first West Coast port in North America to join the Green Marine environmental program in 2010. For more information on PRPA’s participation in Green Marine, visit here.
PRPA also encourages others to invest in sustainable practices through our Green Wave initiative. For more information on PRPA’s Green Wave program for shippers, visit here.

Commitment to Community
A healthy Skeena River is vital to the entire northwest region, which is why PRPA has established the Skeena River Salmon Enhancement Program. The PRPA program offers to partner with local organizations by providing financial support for projects that increase salmon stock productivity and the maintenance and rehabilitation of critical habitat in the Skeena River Watershed.
