Keep Mobile Growing

2017 Annual Meeting Presentations

Keep Mobile Growing is a non-profit alliance honoring the historic and enduring role that the Port of Mobile and its related industries play in strengthening the Mobile-area and state economic prosperity and quality of life.  Today, Alabama's only deepwater seaport terminals and associated network of hundreds of large and small businesses generate $21.7 billion in economic value annually and provide jobs for 147,000 Alabamians.

Health Safety and the Environment

  • Above-ground petroleum storage terminals have operated safely in the Port of Mobile for over eight decades, and Federal environmental protections in the Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act have meant vast reductions in the daily air and water pollutants once associated with more abundant paper manufacturing in the area. These former sites are now being redeveloped with cleaner, more modern and highly regulated industries, such as oil and gas storage, that strengthen Port trade and bring new jobs and improved quality of life for our region.
