LA cuts emissions by reducing vessel speeds

The Port of Los Angeles has recognised 28 shipping lines for their participation in its Vessel Speed Reduction Program (VSRP) to help decrease operational emissions. This is an air quality and annual incentive programme for vessel operators who reduce their speed as they approach or depart the port. In 2018, 174 companies participated in the programme, with more than 3,000 combined vessel calls that aided in the decrease of emissions from ocean-going vessels. 589 ships attained the 100% VSRP compliance within the 20 and 40 nautical mile zone.
