Port of Seattle Receives Clean Air Excellence Award

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) presented the Port of Seattle with a 2014 Clean Air Excellence Award two days ago in recognition of its Seaport Air Quality Program.

Eight other initiatives and one individual were also given awards, which recognize innovative programs that protect Americans’ health and the environment, educate the public, serve their communities and stimulate the economy.

The Port of Seattle thanks the EPA for their recognition of our environmental initiatives,” said Tay Yoshitani, Port of Seattle CEO. “Our staff has worked closely with local organizations and businesses to insure that our programs have a positive impact on both air quality and economic growth for our region.”

The Port of Seattle was given the award in the ‘Regulation/Policy Innovations’ category for its work in successfully reducing maritime-related emissions through programs that exceed laws and regulations. The port worked collaboratively with regulatory agencies, neighboring ports, the maritime industry, and the community to reduce air emissions.

The resulting programs include the At-Berth Clean (ABC) Fuels initiative, Green Gateway Partner Awards, the Clean Truck Program, and promoting shore power use for cruise vessels while moored at port terminals.
