Sustainability at the Heart of Strategy
TasPorts became a participating member of the TEER Program in 2021, after being a member of the Derwent Estuary Program for several years. Why would we be interested in the TEER Program?
TasPorts has a long affiliation with the kanamaluka/Tamar Estuary through the Port of Launceston Authority, and with our Launceston office just a stone's throw away from the Estuary on Willis Street.
Adjacent to one of Tasmania’s major industrial estates, is the Port of Bell Bay. The port is located on the eastern bank of the kanamaluka/Tamar Estuary, 48 kilometres north of Launceston. The Port of Bell Bay is a major port for domestic and international bulk goods, as well as container services.
On the western shore of kanamaluka/Tamar Estuary is Inspection Head Wharf, the home wharf to our tugs Risdon Cove and RT Sensation and RT Force.
TasPorts’ involvement through the TEER Program has allowed our Environment and Sustainability Team to evolve and adapt our sustainability strategy. As we look forward, it is critical that we continue to plan for a sustainable future at all of our ports.
