The Chamber of Shipping of America (CSA) has honored 106 Crowley-owned or -operated vessels with Certificates of Environmental Achievement. The awards recognize the company for operating vessels without any environmental incidents, displaying a commitment to respecting and protecting the environment on oceans and inland waterways.
The 106 vessels represent a combined sum of 1,068 years of service without experiencing an environmental incident, which includes reportable spills or port citations. Among them, 42 vessels have served at least 10 years without an incident.
“The significant number of vessels with long tenures without an environmental incident is a credit to the dedicated men and women who serve as crews and shore-side personnel. At Crowley, we always put safety atop our core values, and that includes a commitment to being environmental stewards where we work,” said Crowley Vice President Mike Golonka, government services, who was among recipients at the CSA awards ceremony Nov. 8. “We are grateful and appreciative of awards from CSA, and share their support for environmental protection.”
“Safe and environmentally responsible operations is a culture fully embraced by the maritime industry as a whole and as evidenced by the performances of the award recipients,” said Kathy Metcalf, president of CSA.
The awards are open to all owners and operators of vessels that operate on oceans or inland waterways.
