Ports Initiative

A National Conversation on Ports (Webinars)

" "To exchange views and develop a shared understanding of the challenges and opportunities of ports and port communities, EPA's Office of Transportation and Air Quality hosted a series of webinars, bringing together port stakeholders in a "National Conversation on Ports." Highlights presented during the webinars include, but are not limited to following:

  • Port of Virginia: Building a Toolkit for Sustainable Ports
  • Port of Long Beach: Technology Advancement Program
  • Northwest Ports Clean Air Strategy
  • Ports, Freight Transport and Health: The Worker  and Community Health Impacts
  • Case Studies in Collaborative Action: Examples from Across the Country
  • Applying EPA's Expertise to Ports
  • The Port Sector: A Sampling of Perspectives

These meetings allowed EPA to hear directly from those whose lives and livelihoods are most closely tied to ports. The insights and lessons that emerged from the webinars helped formulate subsequent actions including development of the agenda for the National Port Stakeholders Summit held on April 8, 2014.
