Clean Fuels Group Honors Harbor Commissioner
Mario Cordero Receives 20/20 Vision Award for Air Quality Plan

April 21, 2009

The Alternative Fuel Vehicle Institute — a national group that promotes alternative fuel use — gave its “20/20 Vision Award” to Long Beach Harbor Commissioner Mario Cordero on Tuesday, April 21, for his leadership role in implementing the San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan (CAAP) and his ardent advocacy for the use of alternative fuels and renewable energy.

Cordero received the award along with S. David Freeman, President of the Los Angeles Board of Harbor Commissioners. The two Harbor Commissions in 2006 jointly adopted the CAAP, a comprehensive strategy for reducing air pollution from the port-relation operations 45 percent by 2012. Cordero, an attorney, has served on the Long Beach Harbor Commission since 2003 and served as Commission President from July 2007 through June 2008.

“I’m honored to accept this award. The Board of Harbor Commissioners has been united in its commitment to reduce emissions at the Port of Long Beach. I share this acknowledgement with my colleagues,” Cordero said.

The Alternative Fuel Vehicle Institute (AFVI) presents awards annually to individuals and groups who have made a significant difference in advancing the industry by furthering the use of alternative fuels and technology in the marketplace.

The Clean Air Action Plan encourages the use of alternative fuels such as liquefied natural gas (LNG) for heavy-duty drayage trucks at the ports. It also commits funds toward the research and development of new technologies to replace diesel-powered cargo-handling equipment.

The AFVI presented the awards at its annual conference in Orlando, Fla.
