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.

This was a virtual event and copies of some of the presentations may be viewed below, along with the agenda. AGENDA
