Strategies

The Clean Air Action Plan identifies strategies to reduce pollution from every source – ships, trucks, trains, harbor craft (such as tugs and workboats), and cargo-handling equipment (such as cranes and yard tractors). Since 2005, these strategies have resulted in emission reductions exceeding 85% for particulate matter, 50% for nitrogen oxides, and 95% for sulfur oxides.

Ships are the largest source of emissions at the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. That’s why we’ve adopted cutting-edge programs to target this pollution.
