The Halifax Port Authority is committed to the environmental protection and sustainability of the Halifax Harbour and the local community. To help fulfill this commitment the Halifax Port Authority has implemented an Environmental Management System.

Our EMS applies to all of our operations and it has been certified to the international standard for environmental management systems ISO 14001. The Port of Halifax was the first port in Canada to achieve ISO 14001 certification.

The Halifax Port Authority encourages environmental stewardship throughout the Port of Halifax by setting positive environmental performance examples for other users of the Port to follow.
