Ports of LA/Long Beach announce greener plan

It sets even more aggressive goals and strategies for reducing air pollution and health risks from goods movement

By ·

The ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach today released the 2010 San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan (CAAP) Update, which sets even more aggressive goals and strategies for reducing air pollution and health risks from goods movement.

The draft 2010 CAAP Update was released in April. This final version of the 2010 CAAP Update incorporates comments and changes and is scheduled to be considered for approval in a joint meeting of the two ports’ boards of harbor commissioners on October 6, at 2 p.m. at Banning’s Landing Community Center, 100 E. Water St., Wilmington 90744. The meeting will be webcast live at http://www.polb.com/webcast and on the Port of Los Angeles website here.

The 2010 CAAP Update, Fact Sheet and “Response to Comments” document are available at http://www.cleanairactionplan.org, www.polb.com/caap or http://www.portoflosangeles.org.

The original CAAP and the 2010 CAAP Update were developed with significant input and collaboration among the ports, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, California Air Resources Board and South Coast Air Quality Management District.

According to the American Association of Port Authorities, the two ports represent the busiest cargo gateways in the nation, moving $300 billion in trade each year. By virtue of their combined size, many other port authorities look to Southern California as a model for their own future development.

In an interview with LM prior to the CAAP release, Port of LA spokesman, Phillip Sanfield said the Harbor Commissioner’s meeting next Monday, September 27, would likely address the hotly-contest “clean trucks” concession program.
