NQBP has a comprehensive program of environmental monitoring that is reviewed annually. It is developed on a port-by-port basis to ensure environmental issues in each port are being adequately monitored.

Sustainability plan

In August 2015, the NQBP Board endorsed Sustainability Plan 2015+, setting a benchmark in the Australian port industry for whole-of-business sustainability planning.

The plan has five themes and 24 actions, which aim to support our operations, port communities and port environment.

In 2017, we reported our progress against these actions in our Sustainability Review.


Our biannual environment report, YourPorts, enables us to demonstrate our commitment to sustainable port practices and dedication to the larger community and regions.
