About the Clean Air Strategy
The Strategy outlines voluntary actions to reduce emissions from maritime-related activities at the Port of New York and New Jersey. It was developed and continues to be implemented by a multi-agency Strategy Group with input from industry, environmental and community stakeholders, and the public.
The scope of the Strategy includes Brooklyn Port Authority Marine Terminal, Howland Hook Marine Terminal, Port Newark, Port Jersey Marine Terminal, and Elizabeth Port Authority Marine Terminals. The scope does not include emissions tied to non-maritime Port Authority facilities such as airports, bridges, tunnels, or maritime-related facilities not under the aegis of the Port Authority.
