Clean Air Action Plan Advisory Meeting
March 29, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
An advisory meeting to provide updates on progress of the San Pedro Bay Ports Clean
Air Action Plan (CAAP) 2017 Update is scheduled to be held March 29 in Long Beach.
Up to four CAAP stakeholder advisory meetings a year were called for as part of the
Clean Air Action Plan Update approved by the Long Beach and Los Angeles boards of
Harbor Commissioners on Nov. 2, 2017. This will be the first advisory meeting.
The meeting is scheduled for 10 a.m. to noon, Thursday, March 29, in the first-floor
training room of the Port of Long Beach Interim Administrative Offices, 4801 Airport
Plaza Drive, Long Beach, 90815. The meeting is open to the public.
The CAAP 2017 Update is a comprehensive strategy for accelerating progress toward a
zero-emission future while protecting and strengthening the ports’ competitive position
in the global economy. Since 2005, port-related air pollution emissions in San Pedro
Bay have dropped 87 percent for diesel particulate matter, 56 percent for nitrogen
oxides, and 97 percent for sulfur oxides. Targets for reducing greenhouse gases
(GHGs) from port-related sources were introduced as part of the 2017 CAAP. The
document calls for the ports to reduce GHGs 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030 and
80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050. The Clean Air Action Plan was originally
approved in 2006.
At the advisory meeting, staff of the two ports will discuss near-term priorities for CAAP
implementation, next steps for the Clean Truck Program, the status of technology
demonstrations and the timeline for feasibility assessments. Public comment will be
taken to receive input on CAAP implementation issues.
