The Port Authority is committed to making the airports environmentally responsible with wide ranging initiatives.
The port has been ISO 14001 certified since 2009. Shore power allows ships to connect to an electrical grid on the dock and turn off their engines. Learn how we are balancing our port economic development goals with our goals for environmental stewardship.
Reduced congestion, through ITS and other initiatives, helps speed motorist travel times, while also benefitting the environment by cutting emissions.
Every PATH rider saves, on average, 2.17 pounds of CO2 per trip. In 2012, PATH riders helped save over 80,000 tons of greenhouse gases, which is equivalent to saving over 8.2 million gallons of gasoline.
All of the agency's new development projects are designed to achieve LEED certification and all buildings constructed at the WTC site will be built to LEED Gold standards.
Across the agency, the Port Authority's vehicular fleet is comprised of hybrids, biodiesel, Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), ethanol 85, and hydrogen vehicles. More than 80 percent of the Port Authority's on-road fleet is green.
