Minneapolis City Council unanimously passes Ship It Zero resolution

On Sept. 8, the Minneapolis City Council unanimously passed a “Ship it Zero” resolution that would call on top maritime import polluters in the U.S. to commit to making all imports 100 percent zero emission ships by 2030.

The resolution makes Minneapolis the third U.S. city to pass a Ship It Zero resolution, following Los Angeles and Long Beach, Cal.
