Clearing the Way to the Future
Facilitating global trade while protecting the environment is a delicate balance at the nation’s largest trade gateway. To strike that balance, the Port of Los Angeles is leading the way internationally when it comes to reducing air emissions, improving water quality, modernizing facilities and cultivating the development of new technologies that will help ensure good jobs and a brighter future for millions of people.
Achieving this balance requires far-reaching vision and 24/7 commitment. From controversial but revolutionary initiatives like our Clean Truck Program, to our numerous efforts to “electrify” the Port in order to reduce fossil fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, the Port of L.A. is on the forefront of environmental change in the port and maritime industries.
