Halifax Port Authority Annual Meeting Follow Up
For the Port of Halifax, sustainability is the balance of economics, community integration and the environment.
The Halifax Port Authority is working to better incorporate this balance into all aspects of the organization, because in order to be a true economic development hub, we must ensure we are also taking a leadership role in environmental stewardship and community involvement.
During the Halifax Port Authority Annual Meeting held virtually on May 20, 2020, our most recent Consolidated Financial Statements and Stakeholder Report were formally presented, and online copies can be found here.
As President and CEO, I see my role as bringing together all the different players who make up Port City Halifax to find that balance between economic development, community and environment. I am fortunate to have willing community and industry partners to work with, and the support of a great team to help with the heavy lifting.
Oftentimes, goals are compared to a finish line, and once that line is crossed then the results are analyzed, new strategies are developed, and a new goal is set. Sustainability does not fit neatly into that model or way of thinking.
Instead, sustainability should be viewed as something holistic, a living thing that needs ongoing attention, consideration and nurturing.
We look forward to building on those initiatives which are achieving positive results, learning from the current global situation, and working together as Port City Halifax to develop new ideas and practices which will result in a more sustainable future.
