Striving to be the Greenest Port in the Southeast
There’s more to the Port of Charleston than just cargo, ships, trucks, and trains. In fact, the Port has taken on one of the state’s largest environmental efforts to date — and was one of the first in the nation to consider "people" impacts. Among its efforts, the Port has restored 22 acres of salt marsh on Drum Island, reduced port-related air emissions and is funding two air monitoring stations. The Port is also partnering with the Lowcountry Open Land Trust, Center for Birds of Prey, Wounded Nature Working Veterans, and other groups through annual charitable giving donations. The Port is constantly looking for ways to improve and minimize any environmental impacts while partnering with state and federal agencies where possible to bring lasting successes to the region.
