  • How Will this Reduce GHGs? GHG reductions will be achieved through co-benefits associated with reducing diesel particulate matter Co-benefit actions include: Switching to electricity or alternative fuels Operational efficiency improvements Support goals established by State, Provincial, and Federal governments GHG reductions will be achieved through co-benefits associated with reducing diesel particulate matter Co-benefit actions include: Switching to electricity or alternative fuels Operational efficiency improvements Support goals established by State, Provincial, and Federal governments

  • 14 The Green Gateway Implications The West Coast ports are the most energy- efficient gateways from Asia to U.S. consumers The Pacific Northwest ports have a slightly lower carbon footprint from Asia than any other port in North America Study adds data to the emerging field of carbon footprint assessments of supply chains The West Coast ports are the most energy- efficient gateways from Asia to U.S. consumers The Pacific Northwest ports have a slightly lower carbon footprint from Asia than any other port in North America Study adds data to the emerging field of carbon footprint assessments of supply chains

  • Adaptation Concerns and Challenges Increased storm events: damage to facilities Sea Level Rise: Container terminals are currently built to 18 above 0 tide Supply chain disruption Ports in Asia may feel impacts of sea level rise before ports in North America Possible routing changes as a result of storm events Facility vulnerability assessment Underway, expected completion Q1 2010 Increased storm events: damage to facilities Sea Level Rise: Container terminals are currently built to 18 above 0 tide Supply chain disruption Ports in Asia may feel impacts of sea level rise before ports in North America Possible routing changes as a result of storm events Facility vulnerability assessment Underway, expected completion Q1 2010
