Participants benchmark their annual environmental performance and then verify the results with an accredited external verifier. The Port of Corpus Christi is the only certified Port in Texas.
ISO 14001 Certified since 2007
ISO 14001 is an internal standard that serves as guidelines for an environmental management system. It helps an organization identify their environmental footprint and systematically reduce the footprint. The Port has reduced energy and water consumption, reduced waste, reduced pollutants in storm water, reduced air emissions and dust, reduced spills.
