The Chamber of Shipping of America (CSA) has honored Crowley Maritime Corporation’s commitment to environmentally safe operations by presenting 117 Crowley-owned or operated vessels with Environmental Achievement Awards, reads the company’s press release.
Achievement in environmental excellence
The awards recognize vessels and crews for achieving records free of incidents for environmental excellence.
To be eligible for the award, a vessel must have at least a two-year period without reportable spills, U.S. Coast Guard or port states citations for environmental violations, and no state or local pollution violations.
Environmentally safe operations
Crowley’s honored vessels include articulated tug-barges, tankers, container ships, ship assist and offshore tugs, and more.
With 1,288 years of combined incident-free operations, the honorees include 50 vessels that have surpassed a decade or more without an environmental incident.
“Crowley congratulates the crews and shoreside personnel whose hard work and dedication made these strong records of environmentally safe operations a reality,” said Capt. Boren Chambers, director, marine operations, Crowley Shipping.
He added, “Our commitment to respecting and protecting our oceans and inland waterways is a crucial part of our safe and reliable operations.”
