The Emerging Sustainable Harbor


The Emerging Sustainable Harbor:
It’s About Jobs and Moving Goods by Water

The New York Harbor is the third largest port in the United States. Its infrastructure, port support services, and related operations extend all along the New Jersey and New York City waterfront. More and more the working waterfront is growing in ways that encourage sustainability, keep trucks off the road, grow local jobs, and involve local communities. Hear from waterfront industry leaders and community activists about environmental progress. Learn about how working waterfront operations encourage sustainability and create new jobs and what more can be done to ensure the working waterfront will be economically and environmentally sustainable.
