The Port continues to closely monitor the resources it uses relative to cargo volumes handled. The following table reflects initiatives to minimise greenhouse gas emissions and progress over the last five years.
The Port has now completed its third year of a concerted waste management programme. The 2012 results have been impressive. The waste-to-land fill was just 108 tonnes compared to 630 tonnes in 2010. This 79% reduction also saw recycling volumes increase by 230% and this was achieved at a net saving to Napier Port. The following chart highlights these achievements.
