As part of AAPA’s efforts to take a leadership stance in the fight against climate change, AAPA recently joined as a founding member of the Blue Sky Maritime Coalition. The coalition’s mission is to accelerate the transition of waterborne transportation in the United States and Canada toward net-zero GHG emissions.
“We are thrilled to have AAPA join the Blue Sky Maritime Coalition as a Founding Member,” said the organization’s president and CEO David Cummins. “Ports in the U.S. and Canada are at the heart of North American waterborne transportation operations, and AAPA’s proven ability to connect and unite the diverse voices of the ports around common interests is perfectly aligned with Blue Sky’s mission to achieve commercially viable maritime decarbonization through collaboration along this entire value chain. We whole-heartedly welcome AAPA to the Blue Sky Maritime Coalition, and we know they will be an integral part of the conversation, solutions and our overall success.”
It’s important for the ports to be a part of this collaborative effort among the maritime industry. AAPA encourages members to learn more and get involved as it best fits their operation. Contact Jessica Mahaffey for next steps.
