11Truck Emissions Down 76% in Oakland

The Port of Oakland is well on its way to accomplishing its goal of reducing emissions by 85% by 2020.  A recent study by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory shows carbon emissions dropped by 76% between 2009 and 2013.  Additionally, Nitrous Oxide emissions declined 53% during this same time period.

The trucking industry is proud of this accomplishment and is pleased to move to the port’s goal forward.
