Community Engagement

Being part of our community

CentrePort is a proud member of the Wellington region and community.

Community is one of the core pillars for how CentrePort does things, and the port engages and supports a range of organisations and events within the Wellington region.

Sustainable Coastlines is doing a nationwide monitoring programme and the Kaiwharawhara Estuary is included.

The CentrePort team is proud to be working with the Sanctuary to Sea programme, which is usually community led.

Four times a year there is a clean-up and a monitoring exercise. Team members from CentrePort are proud to be involved in the clean-up within the local area.
