As the leading proponent of a market-based approach to clean air at America's ports, we will work collaboratively with local policymakers and communities to develop innovative solutions that reduce port truck pollution while maintaining flow of commerce.
CRT members are committed to driving significant and permanent improvements in air quality at and around our nation's ports. Our mission is to be responsible stewards of the environment by facilitating the implementation of practical and responsible solutions that reduce truck pollution without disrupting the flow of commerce.
CRT's Five Goals:
Develop a pro-active compliance attitude regarding the development and administration of environmental emission regulations.
CRT and its members continually strive to create and implement sustainable business prectices that minimize diesel emissions from port activities. Through the CRT Clean Trucks Initiative, our members are investing millions of dollars in support of clean truck deployment at ports across the country.

Demonstrate our commitment to the environment and the communities we serve

Facilitate the inclusion of industry perspective in legislative and regulatory activities

CRT prides itself on engaging in a collaborative dialog with policymakers that facilitates the inclusion of industry perspective into port-related legislative and regulatory processes.
