What is the San Pedro Bay Clean Air Action Plan? The San Pedro Bay Clean Air Action Plan (CAAP) has been developed jointly by the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles, in cooperation with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), California Air Resources Board (CARB) and South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD), to define implementation strategies to meet shared air quality improvement goals. The plan includes measures for achieving emission reductions from various port operations over the next five years.
The Ports recognize that their ability to accommodate the projected growth in trade will depend upon their ability to address adverse environmental impacts (and, in particular, air quality impacts) that results from such trade. The San Pedro Bay Ports are committed to expeditiously and constantly reduce the public health risk associated with port-related mobile sources, and implement a program within five years that will achieve this goal.
