​Managing fuel and energy is a priority for us to ensure we operate sustainably. In 2019 we completed the roll out of LED lighting in our office building, cargos sheds, workshops and flood lights. We have over 90% LED lighting coverage across the Port. LED upgrades include the exterior floodlights, workshops and sheds and the POAL office building. As part of this, all the lights have been supplied and installed as an integrated system with IoT technology giving us improved control and smart sensor lighting in the office and cargo buildings (e.g. motions sensors, daylight harvesting etc).

We are also focused on increasing our use of rail and the relative reduction in truck movements. Our target is to increase rail throughput to 30% in the next 10 years, which will help to create a more sustainable transport system and generate infrastructure savings at a national level.

Our focus is also on recycling around the port, everything from mud to office waste.

The mud we dredge out of the harbour during maintenance and berth-deepening work has formed part of our biggest recycling project, with approximately 13,700 cubic metres of dredged material being used in the reclamation area in 2015.

We have a goal to be zero waste to landfill by 2040 – we have created a roadmap of projects to achieve this goal and are in the process of implementing them.

We have also played a key role in working with our customers to reduce shipping speeds through the Hauraki Gulf, helping to safeguard the local Bryde's whale population.
