You’ve probably heard Houston talked about as “the energy capital of the world,” and it truly is. But you probably didn’t know that there are many Houston companies, like Port Houston, that are deeply focused on improving the environment and providing continued sustainability for the future. Port Houston is constantly finding new ways of doing things and implementing changes now that will carry the organization into the future. One of our strategic priorities is to be an environmental leader by implementing ambitious programs and goals to drive this forward.
In an effort to further reduce air emissions and practice sustainability, Port Houston has purchased five Chevy Bolt electric vehicles as well as three charging stations. Port Houston is one of the few ports in the United States to use this kind of energy-efficient vehicle. In 2019, the Port received a Houston-Galveston Area Council emissions reduction incentives grant of $72,438 to facilitate the purchase.
