PBPL has established an extensive range of long term
mandatory and voluntary environmental monitoring programs
to assist us in understanding the impacts our operations
have on the environment and guide our environmental management
Real-time air quality monitoring stations are located around
Since 1991, the seagrass bed adjacent to the Port has grown
200% from 4.4㎢ to 13.9㎢.
The Port of Brisbane is surrounded by approximately 352 hectares of mangroves.
The FPE seawall extends 4.6km making it one of the longest
intertidal and subtidal rocky habitats within western Moreton Bay.
No priority weed prohibited or invasive weed species have been recorded on PBPL land
Our solar panels reduce our buildings annual carbon emissions by 20%
We are committed to investing in renewable energy with a total of 260.61kW rooftop solar systems installed on a number of PBPL owned buildings that produce the equivalent of 300,000kWh of electricity, saving approximately 243 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2), or the equivalent of 60 Standard residential rooftop systems. This includes a 65.36kW of rooftop solar on the Operations Base, 30kW on Port Central building, 18kW on the Mission to Seafarers building, 76.25kW on the Brisbane Multimodal Terminal and 71kW on the Multi-User Terminal.
PBPL will continue to investigate solar and renewable energy opportunities more broadly, with a long-term view to delivering significant and sustainable environmental benefits to the Port of Brisbane.
Over 60,000 migratory shorebirds visit the port each year
61 nest boxes on these sites provide a habitat for more than 12 types of animals
Ambient water quality monitoring has detected no impacts from Port operations.
