Deadline Extended: Ports Looking for Clean Air Innovators
Nominations open to recognize green efforts
April 25, 2013
There is still time to submit nominations for the sixth annual San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan Air Quality Awards, in which the Port of Long Beach and the Port of Los Angeles will recognize the air pollution-fighting efforts of port-related businesses in the area.
The deadline for CAAP Award nominations has been extended to 4 p.m. Friday, May 3. Nominations can be completed and submitted online, at www.cleanairactionplan.org/about/caapnomination.asp.
Nominations will be accepted for port tenants operating at either port as well as other operators serving the ports – such as shipping lines, trucking companies and rail operators – who demonstrated a strong commitment to reducing air pollution in 2012.
Only port tenants and other operators that serve one or both of the local ports are eligible for this program; technology vendors are not eligible. Self-nominations also will be accepted.
Awards will be offered in four categories:
- Air Quality Improvement Leadership at the Corporate Level
- Innovative Air Quality Improvement Technologies
- Innovative Operations that Improve Air Quality
- Significant Early Action to Reduce Air Pollutant Emissions
Award recipients will be honored at a ceremony July 18.
