CAAP Meeting Set for Jan. 27

The ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles will update the public on the status of their San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan goals on Jan. 27.

The meeting – the first for 2021 – will take place virtually from 10 a.m. to noon.

The ports first created the plan in 2005 and since then has seen pollution from port operations decrease, including diesel particulate matter, which fell 87 percent, nitrogen oxides by 58 percent and sulfur oxides by 97 percent.

The ports updated its plan in 2017 to quicken its goals to a zero-emissions and focus on lowering greenhouse gases. The goal is to lower GHGs by 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030 and 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050, according to the ports.
