The Port of Stockton and Environment

What is the Port doing to reduce its environmental impact?

The Port is always working to meet and exceed industry standards. Since 2018, the Port has received annual certification from Green Marine in recognition of our leadership and commitment to continuously reducing our environmental footprint. This certification includes managing and reducing air pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions, preventing spills, reducing underwater noise, and disposing of waste safely. You can read about Green Marine here. 

Are there any environmental efforts I can see?

Yes! The Port plants new trees by hosting events and using grants. You can track using Tree Plotter – an online tree inventory tool to monitor the progress and the environmental impact of existing and planned trees. 

The Port is also home to a population of barn owls that live in 20 boxes across the property. Owl boxes were first established at the Port in 2006, and in 2013 the Port installed video cameras in two of the boxes. Exterior cameras were added in 2014 to allow us to see what happens on the outside. The cameras are equipped with infrared vision to allow for night viewing when the owls are most active. The video is streamed live, 24 hours a day. These owl boxes not only offer a safe home for local barn owls, but provide eco-friendly rodent control for the Port. You can view live streams of some of the owl boxes here. Your best chances of seeing activity are at night!
