The Port of Los Angeles is committed to promoting responsible growth and supporting innovative development. Utilizing the tenets of sustainability, the Port works toward the best interests of the community, environment, and economy. These principles are practiced through integral considerations during planning, design and construction, and throughout operations and maintenance of Port facilities and structures.
As the Port conducts the initial phases of a planned 10-year capital improvement program, sustainable practices will be effectively used for the benefit of the projects and to maintain consistency with the mission and goals of the City as a whole. Improvements include container terminal redevelopment, transportation infrastructure improvements, and recreational- and community-based developments.
