A Sustainable Port
PortMiami is surrounded by a natural environment that includes sea grass and marine life, along with a vibrant downtown with both commercial and residential neighborhoods. Our mission is to operate the State's top container port and world's leading cruise port in a way that supports sustainability.
PortMiami is committed to adopting policies that support sustainability and ensure earth-friendly operations. The Port's goal to provide sustainable services by carefully balancing environmental, social, and economic factors has led to its Green Ports program.
PortMiami is designated as a "clean port," and only handles containerized break bulk. Cargo shipments are limited to containerized and roll on/off cargo, representing little threat to Biscayne Bay and surrounding ecosystems.
