About the Collaborative

The West Coast Collaborative (Collaborative) is an ambitious
partnership between leaders from federal, state, and local
government, the private sector, and environmental groups
committed to reducing diesel emissions along the West Coast.
Partners come from all over Western North America, including
California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Nevada,
Hawaii, Canada and Mexico. Click here

The Collaborative is focused on creating, supporting and implementing
diesel emissions reductions projects. To accomplish this goal,
the Collaborative:

  • Raises awareness of the need for diesel emissions reductions
    and the many highly successful state, tribal, local, and regional
    efforts that promote and support voluntary projects;
  • Creates a forum for information sharing among diesel emissions
    reductions advocates, and works to leverage significant new
    resources to expand voluntary diesel emissions mitigation efforts;
    and
  • Implements projects that are regional in scope, leverage
    funds from a variety of sources, achieve measurable emissions
    reductions, and create momentum for future diesel emissions
    mitigation efforts.

The Collaborative is organized around six sector workgroups
that meet regularly by teleconference and occasionally face-to-face,
and is supported by an Interim Steering Committee:

The Collaborative is an integral part of the National Clean
Diesel Campaign. The Collaborative also helps coordinate
regional efforts for cleaner fuels and the Clean School Bus
USA program. EPA launched, but does not control the Collaborative.
