Event description

Description

In June, the Port of Oakland's Board of Commissioners approved the Seaport Air Quality 2020 and Beyond Plan -- a roadmap for significant greenhouse gas and diesel emissions from seaport operations. Building upon the previously existing Maritime Air Quality Improvement Plan established in 2008, this ambitious plan calls for increased equipment electrification, fleet modernization, and transitioning to cleaner and renewable power sources to prepare the Port for its longer-term vision of zero emissions.The Port has demonstrated a great track record of meeting its air quality goals thus far, including an 81% reduction in Diesel Particulate Matter since 2005.

Please join us for a briefing on the Plan by Richard Sinkoff, Director of Environmental Programs and Planning at the Port of Oakland, who will discuss the new goals of the plan, the anticipated challenges, and opportunities for BPC to get involved in the implementation phase. A discussion will follow on other pressing air quality issues, including the recently released Draft West Oakland Community Action Plan - a product of the AB 617 Clean Air Protection Program.

Members only. Please RSVP.
