World Environment Day, an event run by the United Nations Environment Program, is celebrated every year on 5 June to raise global awareness to take positive environmental action to protect nature and the planet.
This year, the theme focused on sustainable consumption and living within planetary boundaries to ensure a healthy future. In support of this, PBPL celebrated World Environment Day with a number of events and activities.
Themed “Reduce Our Footprint”, an exhibition was held at the Port Office Forecourt to showcase to the community our environmental programs throughout the Port, which includes waste management, monitoring air and water quality, marine health, and flora and fauna management activities.
PBPL Environment Manager Craig Wilson said: “These are just a few of our commitments that will deliver long term improvements to reducing our footprint at the Port.
“We are constantly working towards improving our activities and appreciate all feedback we receive from our stakeholders to improve our programs.”
The event was well attended by the community and a special thank you to our environmental partners B4C, SEQ Catchments, Mangrove Watch, Pelican and Seabird Rescue, UQ, QLD Wader Study Group, BMT WBM and Griffith University, and students from Brisbane Bayside College, Manly and Manly West State School, Tingalpa State School, Wondall Heights State School, Wynnum and Wynnum West State School and Wynnum State High School for making this event possible.
