The success of our transportation programs is made possible with the support and participation of our partners, who are committed to working together for cleaner air.
Northwest Ports Clean Air Strategy
The Northwest Ports Clean Air Strategy is a voluntary collaboration among Northwest Seaport Alliance, Port of Seattle, and Port of Tacoma in the U.S., and Vancouver with a vision to reduce -- and ultimately eliminate -- seaport-related air pollutant and greenhouse gas emissions throughout the Georgia Basin-Puget Sound airshed. The Agency has been an active participant in the Northwest Ports Clean Air Strategy since its inception in 2007 and continues to work with the ports and other partners to achieve significant emissions reductions across sources, including ships, trucks, rail, and cargo-handling equipment.
Western Washington Clean Cities Coalition is a designated coalition under the U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Cities initiative. The Clean Cities Coalition advances the region's environmental and public health, energy security, and economic development by promoting policies and practices that reduce petroleum consumption in transportation. Western Washington Clean Cities works to assist Puget Sound fleets in adopting technologies and practices that reduce petroleum use.
West Coast Collaborative
The West Coast Collaborative is a public-private partnership between leaders from federal, state, and local government, the private sector, and environmental groups committed to reducing diesel emissions along the West Coast, from Canada to Mexico. The goal of the Collaborative is to leverage significant federal funds to reduce emissions from the most polluting diesel sources in the most affected communities.
Western Clean Rail Collaborative
The Western Clean Rail Collaborative is collaborative with representation from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Oregon Department of Environmental Quality, Washington Department of Ecology, the Northwest Seaport Alliance, Port of Seattle, and the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency. The overarching goal of this collaborative is to support rail operators in their own unique efforts to become more sustainable and meet their air quality and climate goals.
Puget Sound Maritime Air Forum
The Puget Sound Maritime Air Forum is a voluntary association of private and public maritime organizations, clean air agencies, and other parties with operational or regulatory responsibilities related to air quality impacts from the maritime industry. Beginning in 2007, the agency worked with forum members to develop a Maritime Air Emissions Inventory of maritime-related diesel equipment operating within the greater Puget Sound region. This inventory was updated in 2016.
