    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.
