MDC Webinar: Port Partnerships Cost-Effective Strategies
About this webinar: The east coast is home to many ports of various sizes and capacities but they all have one thing in common – the need to find cost-effective ways to reduce emissions by adopting new strategies and technologies.
Attend this webinar and learn what the Ports of NYNJ, Baltimore, Virginia and South Carolina have done to get a grip on emissions. Join in and take notes on other funding opportunities for maritime projects from the US DOT Maritime Administration (MARAD); hear from EPA staff about their community building experiences working with port communities to become allies of their local ports; and let a transportation professional share how the pandemic affected different modes of transportation over the last year and a half.
