Port Everglades — Operating on the Principle of Sustainability

Port Everglades manages to stay on top as one of the world’s busiest ports, while remaining environmentally sound and consistent with local, state and federal regulations that govern the Port industry. Here are a few highlights, which affirm the Port's commitment to sustainability:

Other Port environmental initiatives include modifying offshore anchorage by the Coast Guard to reduce potential habitat impacts, implementing manatee protection strategies such as appropriate vessel accommodations and boat speed restrictions, and upgrading to energy-efficient equipment in cruise terminals and office buildings.
