Port in the Community

The Port’s vision is to grow and constantly improve the business and reinvest our profits for the benefit of future generations of stakeholders. In striving to achieve this, we operate within a value system that underpins our business processes and is based around the key themes of: People; Partners; Planet; and Place. We acknowledge the importance of the Port to the city and North West region, and the need to ensure our business has a positive impact on society and the environment.

High profile events regularly come to the region, most recently the City of Culture (2013) and Clipper(2012 and 2014) Festivals. The benefit in kind and sponsorship provided by the Port over the three key events between 2012 and 2014 was in excess of £250k. These events have provided excellent opportunities for the Port to contribute to the positive experience reported by crews, passengers, and visitors from a multitude of nationalities through ensuring the safe transit of vessels on Lough Foyle, including mooring and security arrangements. The pontoon at Foyle Port Marina, custom designed to be accessible to people with mobility issues, is an inclusive feature that enhances our appeal to a wider social audience.

Continuous involvement in school visits and student placements allows us to promote and raise awareness of careers in the industry among young people, and facilitates valuable work experience for students to help them make career decisions.
