AAPA Seaports Magazine, Q1 2022

The First Quarter issue of Seaports Magazine delves into the myriad ways ports are bringing sustainability goals to life. Achieving sustainability is a multi-faceted endeavor that requires support, strategic planning and innovation from not only ports but their partners and tenants. It is a top priority for most ports, though the cost and logistics sometimes curtail its achievability. The articles in this issue address this and present some solutions and ideas on how to breathe life into your port’s sustainability goals.
