Officials from the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach plan to offer an update on the San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan and are asking stakeholders to weigh in at a virtual meeting set.

The meeting, set to take place from 10 a.m. to noon on Oct. 12, is to include the latest information on the seaports’ feasibility assessment studies of drayage trucks, the implementation of the Clean Truck Fund Rate, annual emission inventories and the Green Shipping Corridor.

First approved in 2006, the CAAP is the ports’ strategic blueprint for dramatically reducing air pollution generated by operations at the nation’s busiest seaport complex. The plan was updated in 2017 to include aggressive zero-emission goals such as efforts to lower greenhouse gasses from port operations by 40% below 1990 levels by 2030 and 80% below 1990 levels by 2050.
