Our Approach to Sustainability

A Message from Gary Cross, our President and CEO

As the President and CEO of Maher Terminals, I am proud to present our 2023 Sustainability Report, which showcases our dedication to sustainable business practices and our leadership in pursuing a greener future for the shipping and logistics industry. This report provides an overview of our progress, including a roadmap to achieve net zero Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2040, along with highlights of recent environmental initiatives and programs.

Recently, we have committed to reducing our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by over 35% by 2025 compared to our 2006 baseline, in alignment with the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey’s (PANYNJ) decarbonization goals, and being Net Zero by 2040, a full 10 years ahead of the Pairs Accord.

Our Commitment

At Maher, we are committed to integrate sustainability into our operations, culture and relationships with stakeholders.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) has been working on ensuring operational readiness to address extreme climate events. Maher Terminals and PANYNJ are working together to increase business through the port in a sustainable manner.

Over the past decade, we focused our efforts on thinking over our approach to sustainability and clearly defining our ambitions as a leader in the port industry.

Here, we aim to share the first step of the journey we have embarked on by providing a picture of our current sustainable business practices. Determined to emerge as one of the most sustainable container terminals in North America, we will pursue our efforts over time to continuously assess and improve our sustainable practices and performance.
