CEPP submitted comments for the Port of Oakland’s, Draft Seaport Air Quality 2020 & Beyond Plan in September 2018. CEPP is working closely with the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, the City of Oakland, UC Berkeley scientists and local community groups to develop a plan to reduce air pollution hotspots in neighborhoods near the Port. David Wooley, CEPP Executive Director wrote, “We recommend the final plan clarify that the scope extends to trucks serving the Port, not just equipment owned by the Port and the terminal operators. One can’t have a 'zero-emissions Seaport' without addressing emissions from trucks entering and leaving the Port.” Read CEPP's Draft Seaport Air Quality 2020 & Beyond Plan here.
