The Port of Long Beach invites the public to their Green Port Fair on Saturday, November 5. The Port is working to become the world’s first zero-emissions seaport and the fair will give everyone a chance to see how they’re working towards environmental sustainability and moving to eliminations all emissions.
The free event will feature the new “clean machines” of cargo movement, environmental information booths, a children’s train ride and other activities, ’80s and ’90s cover band Knyght Ryder, food, and a beer and wine garden.
Green Port Fair attendees can find out about the Port’s commitment to having a zero-emissions cargo-handling equipment fleet by 2030, and zero-emissions trucks by 2035. Among other booths, engineers will be on hand to explain how “America’s Green Gateway” – the Pier B On-Dock Support Rail Facility – will also help improve the environment even as trade grows in the coming decades.
