On Sunday 5 March, Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd (PBPL) hosted Clean-Up Australia Day and tree-planting activities at the port, working with local partners Tangalooma EcoMarines
and Queensland Urban Utilities
Around 100 people participated in the clean-up and tree planting activities, which took place on part of the Port’s dedicated environmental areas, adjacent to the Moreton Bay Marine Park.
On the day, around 100 people collected approximately 20 bags of litter and planted almost 700 native trees as part of PBPL’s ongoing revegetation program.
PBPL is proud of its strong record of environmental stewardship, with an internationally-accredited Environmental Management System underpinning its day-to-day operations and long-term planning.
Almost 35 per cent of all Port of Brisbane land – or approximately 640 hectares – is classified as green space, making it the highest amount of green space provision of any capital city port in Australia.
Port of Brisbane has hosted clean-up Australia Day activities since 2012, as part of its strong commitment to preserve and enhance the port’s natural environment.
