Port of Long Beach announce new environmental planning leader

The Long Beach Board of Harbor Commissioners has appointed Renee Moilanen as Director of Environmental Planning for the Port of Long Beach’s sustainability initiatives.

Environmental Planning is the Port section most directly responsible for the Port’s trademark environmental policies and programmes, such as the Green Port Policy and the San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan (CAAP).

Under the 2005 Green Port Policy, a major industry effort, the division oversees programmes to enhance air, water, and soil quality, maintain animal habitats, and incorporate sustainability into port processes.

Moilanen’s appointment takes her back to the Port of Long Beach, where she served as Manager of Air Quality Practices from 2014 to 2019.

Throughout her port career, which began in 2006, she worked as an environmental specialist, environmental specialist associate, and communications administrative analyst.

In April, trade via the Port of Long Beach increased, marking the ninth consecutive month of year-over-year (YoY) cargo growth.
