As the federal agency responsible for enabling trade through the Port of Vancouver, a central part of our mandate is to protect the environment and consider local communities. From day one, we have designed Roberts Bank Terminal 2 with the environment in mind, in a way that is reflective of Indigenous priorities and incorporates Indigenous knowledge, and we will continue to keep this a priority throughout project delivery.

Our approach has been shaped by extensive environmental studies, Indigenous knowledge and interests, and engagement with government, stakeholders, and the public. To develop our plan for the project, we have completed over 100 technical studies and reports, which represents contributions by hundreds of scientists, biologists, engineers, and Indigenous knowledge holders and over 59,000 hours of fieldwork.

We have also leveraged our deep experience building top-tier sustainable infrastructure across the Lower Mainland, including the Centerm Terminal Expansion Project and South Shore Access Project, which won a 2022 Envision Platinum Award for sustainability from the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure.
