The Green Port Effect

The Green Port Effect

At the Port of Long Beach, the world’s greenest terminal is under construction, pioneering anti-pollution measures have led to dramatic clean air gains, and thriving sea life coexists with one of the busiest container ports in the world. These are just a few of the many environmental successes the Port has achieved under its historic Green Port Policy, adopted 10 years ago this month.
