Under Edmonds’ leadership as chairman, the port authority made history in 2002, when it became the first U.S. port facility to implement an Environmental Management System that meets the rigorous parameters of the International Organization for Standardization 14001 system. Under Edmonds’ leadership, the port authority continues to set standards in environmental stewardship and security measures.

In 2008, it became the world’s first port authority to initiate a Security Management System certified under ISO 28000:2007. In 2009, the recertification of its EMS raised the bar higher, with the additional certification of the Bayport Container Terminal. Opened in February 2007, the Bayport terminal has added to the port authority’s annual container handling capacity, which now totals 1.8 million container Twenty-Foot Equivalent Units (or TEUs).
