clean air action plan awardsThe ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles have opened nominations for the Third Annual CAAP Air Quality Awards.  The awards program provides the ports with an opportunity to recognize the exemplary efforts of port operators who go beyond the requirements of the CAAP.

Nominations are due by May 14, 2010, and award recipients will be recognized this summer.

Nominations are now being accepted for port tenants operating at either the Port of Long Beach or the Port of Los Angeles, and other operators that serve the ports (e.g. shipping lines, trucking companies, rail operators) who have demonstrated, during the previous calendar year (2009), a strong commitment to reducing air pollution from port-related sources above and beyond the CAAP goals.  Only port tenants and other operators that serve the ports are eligible for this program; technology vendors are not eligible.  Self-nominations will also be accepted.

Clean Air AAwards will be offered in four categories:

  • Air Quality Improvement Leadership at the Corporate Level
  • Innovative Air Quality Improvement Technologies (demonstration, commercialization, implementation)
  • Innovative Operations that Improve Air Quality
  • Significant Early Action to Reduce Air Pollutant Emissions

Additionally, the ports may select a nomination that does not fit one of the above categories if the nominee’s actions resulted in a significant air quality improvement benefit.

All awards will be evaluated for efforts conducted during calendar year 2009 to improve air quality. A wide range of projects and programs are expected to be nominated.

Nominations are due by 4 p.m., May 14, 2010. To submit a nomination online click here. Alternatively you can download the nomination here, and submit your application (nomination form and project/program summary) by mailing or emailing your application to:
