First approved in 2006, the CAAP is a blueprint for tackling pollution caused by port operations in the San Pedro Bay. Since implementing efforts, the twin ports have seen diesel particulate matter fall 87 percent, nitrogen oxides by 58 percent, sulfur oxides by 97 percent and greenhouse gases by 13 percent, according to the ports. In 2017, the ports updated CAAP to further efforts toward zero-emission operations.
