Implementing the Northwest Ports Clean Air Strategy: A community briefing on maritime clean air and climate action in the region
The Port of Seattle, Port of Tacoma, and Northwest Seaport Alliance are developing ambitious and comprehensive implementation plans to address the urgency of the climate change crisis, and to reduce port-related air emissions in near‐port communities in Seattle and Tacoma. These plans will describe steps the ports will take in the next 5-10 years to implement the 2020 Northwest Ports Clean Air Strategy (2020 Strategy). The 2020 Strategy—unanimously adopted by the ports’ commissioners in April 2021—is a collaborative effort between the Port of Seattle, Tacoma, the Northwest Seaport Alliance, and Vancouver Fraser Port Authority in British Columbia, and sets a vision to phase-out seaport-related emissions by 2050.
The ports are collecting feedback on their draft plans this summer. Final plans, incorporating feedback from our communities, will be presented to port commissioners for adoption in late 2021.
Join us on Thursday, July 15th for a community briefing, where Port leaders and staff from the Port of Seattle, Port of Tacoma, and the Northwest Seaport Alliance will share proposed strategies and actions over the next 5-10 years to eliminate emissions to help limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C. Learn about current and planned projects for the Seattle and Tacoma harbors that improve air quality, protect community health, and address climate change.
Register for our virtual community briefing below. Presentations will be followed by a question and answer session and we will share ways for you to stay involved. Learn about our plans to address climate change
