Nominations have been opened for the annual San Pedro Bay Port Clean Air Action Plan Air Quality Awards, which recognize the air pollution-fighting efforts of local port-related businesses.
Nominations are accepted for port tenants operating at the Port of Los Angeles or Port of Long Beach, as well as other operators serving the ports – such as shipping lines, trucking companies and rail operators – that demonstrated a strong commitment to reducing air pollution in 2011.
Awards will be given in four categories: Air Quality Improvement Leadership at the Corporate Level; Innovative Air Quality Improvement Technologies; Innovative Operations that Improve Air Quality; and Significant Early Action to Reduce Air Pollutant Emissions.
Only port tenants and other operators that serve one or both ports are eligible for awards; technology vendors are not eligible. Self-nominations will be accepted. Award recipients will be recognized during an event this summer.
The deadline for nominations is 4 pm Fri., April 27, 2012. For more information on the awards program and categories, visit cleanairactionplan.org/about/awards.asp.
