Crowley has a long history of environmental protection. A Crowley Safety in Towing Handbook, published 20 years before the Oil Pollution Act of 1990, contains operational procedures to prevent spills that many years later became law. This early interest in keeping our harbors and oceans clean has developed into a strong company culture of environmental stewardship.
Today, our EcoStewardship continues with our focus on taking on greener technology, using more environmentally friendly operations and joining partnerships to help build a greener planet.
Crowley's environmental initiatives have led to special recognition from several prestigious government organizations, including the Chamber of Shipping of America, the U.S. Coast Guard's William Benkert Award for Environmental Excellence, Washington Department of Ecology Exceptional Compliance Program, Pacific States/British Columbia Oil Spill Task Force Legacy Award and the United States Green Building Council LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver Award Designation, among others.
