SDLA Alumna Leads on Port's Climate Plan

CodyHoovenCody Hooven, a 2013 SDLA Fellow and current board member, has been a leading force in the development of the recently adopted Port of San Diego Climate Action Plan. Cody has worked for three years with internal and external stakeholders to craft the plan to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions on District tidelands, which is momentous both for the Port and especially for San Diego's delicate environment.

The plan will be used to provide a long-term and strategic vision for sustainability for the Port's entire jurisdiction including tidelands in all five of its member cities (San Diego, Coronado, Chula Vista, National City, and Imperial Beach) as well as the Port's tenant businesses.

"I've really enjoyed bringing different perspectives and stakeholders together to develop such a long-term, forward-thinking plan. This is just the beginning though, there's lots more to do." 


San Diego's Port District is among the first in the nation to adopt such a sustainability guide voluntarily. The plan passed unanimously on December 10, 2013.
