Tell the Port of Vancouver: We need a stronger ban on scrubbers!

Good news: The Port of Vancouver announced they’re enacting a scrubber ban!

Bad news: It’s incredibly weak. The ban as written excludes the main engine and only actually bans wastes while the ships are at berth and at anchor (the majority of scrubber pollution happens while the ship is underway).

Luckily, that’s not where the story ends – you can improve the proposed scrubber ban by submitting a public comment to the Port of Vancouver.

Tell the Port of Vancouver – the proposed amendment doesn’t go far enough to protect the ocean and port communities from the public health and climate effects of scrubbers.
