Abstract or Description

The Port of San Diego (The Port), established in 1962 under the Port act, is the Maritime agency that manages and stewards the thirty-four miles of coastal working waterfront along the San Diego Bay. The Port develops and promotes commerce, navigation, recreation, a healthy environment and fisheries around the San Diego Bay, contributes billions to San Diego’s economy, and is home to international cargo and trade operations. In a concerted effort to lessen greenhouse gas emissions impact of operations on local, often underserved communities, the Port developed and is implementing a Maritime Clean Air Strategy (MCAS), an update to the Port’s 2007 Clean Air Program. The MCAS, adopted in 2021, identifies a vision centered on “Health Equity for All”, with ambitious goals for 2030 that will contribute to greening the Port’s operations and promote clean air strategies. Through decarbonization, electrification, and innovative clean air strategies, the Port of San Diego hopes to enhance public health in the San Diego Bay region.
