Ports Provide Update on Clean Air Action Plan

SAN PEDRO — The ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles will give an update on the San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan on Oct. 19. Among other topics, the meeting will include a discussion of tariff language being developed to implement the Clean Truck Fund Rate.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the meeting will be virtual. This is the second meeting of 2021 and the 12th under the CAAP 2017 Update.

The CAAP 2017 Update is a comprehens­ive strategy for accelerati­ng progress toward a zeroemissi­on future while protecting and strengthen­ing the ports’ competitiv­e position in the global economy.

The document calls for the ports to reduce GHGs 40% below 1990 levels by 2030 and 80% below 1990 levels by 2050. The Clean Air Action Plan was originally approved in 2006.

The ports will take public comments at the advisory meeting to receive input on CAAP implementa­tion issues. The agenda will be posted on the CAAP website prior to the meeting. For more informatio­n, visit cleanairac­tionplan.org.
