Cleaner Growth For America's Largest Ports

The largest ports in America are missing major, obvious opportunities to clean up its air and publicly demonstrate its commitment to lowering emissions.

The Ports of Los Angeles/Long Beach are responsible for approximately 10% of the Los Angeles basin's air pollution. "While the Port of Los Angeles is moving forward with 'cold- ironing,' powering ships by electricity while docked instead of low-grade, highly polluting diesel fuel, the Port of Long Beach is dragging its feet. Cold-ironing has the potential to significantly lower the amount potentially dangerous air particulates generated at the ports"
