The West Coast Collaborative is focused on creating, supporting and implementing diesel emissions reductions projects.

West Coast Collaborative sectors are working to provide information and funding for a variety of retrofits and efficiency improvements for diesel equipment. They hold regional meetings to share results and develop strategies. The website lists the contacts and program specifics.
The West Coast Collaborative (Collaborative) is a 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.

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.

  • Locomotives and Rail
  • Trucking
  • Construction and Distributed Generation
  • Agriculture and Biofuels
  • Marine Vessels and Ports
  • Public Fleets
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.
