The Port of San Diego Board of Port Commissioners set an important environmental goal at its monthly meeting on Tuesday, June 12.
The Board voted in support of setting a target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions along the tidelands, managed by the Port District, by 10 percent by the year 2020. The reduction will be based on emissions from a 2006 baseline year.
The Board also set a target to further reduce emissions 25 percent by the year 2035. This is a milestone in the Port's work on its Climate Mitigation and Adaptation Plan, known as the Climate Plan.
