Port Sets 2030 Goals for More Breathable Air Via Maritime Clean Air Strategy
The Port of San Diego board has approved a policy intended to help the agency identify projects and initiatives to improve health through cleaner air around San Diego Bay.
The intent is for the Maritime Clean Air Strategy to also support maritime operations. Port commissioners tout the “Health Equity for All” approach as more ambitious than any other clean air policy of its kind in the state.
“Our portside community neighbors as well as our working waterfront and our visitors deserve to breathe clean air,” said Michael Zucchet, the board’s chair. “The Maritime Clean Air Strategy clearly lays out what our goals, aspirations and expectations are for ourselves and for the people who do and want to do business with the Port of San Diego.”
