California Ports Talk Clean Air

By Karen Robes Meeks

Clean air innovation and solutions were on the docket at a two-day Pacific Ports Clean Air Collaborative conference earlier this month.

Hosted by the Port of Los Angeles, the Commission for Environmental Cooperation and the US-China Green Ports and Vessels Initiative, the event brought supply chain stakeholders from all over the world who listen to panels on various topics, including controlling and curbing air emissions and incentivizing those practices as well as exploring new zero-emissions technologies.

“Information sharing and continued dialogue among ports globally has been key to finding sustainable solutions that both protect the environment and allow for steady economic growth,” said Gene Seroka, executive director at the Port of Los Angeles. “When ports work together, we maximize environmental outcomes far beyond what can be accomplished by any single entity. The Port of Los Angeles is pleased to play a leadership role in keeping the momentum going.”
