Crowley Honored with Marine Environmental Business of the Year Award
Crowley Maritime Corporation was awarded the Environmental Business of the Year Award at the 62nd Annual Maritime Festival luncheon in Seattle during the summer of 2013. This award is granted each year to a company that demonstrates environmental initiative and leadership in helping the Port of Seattle maintain a low-carbon footprint.
“We are thrilled to be recognized once more for our past and ongoing environmental stewardship efforts,” said the company’s Scott Hoggarth, general manager, harbor ship assist and tanker escort services. “For Crowley, the effort to protect and improve the environment is not only a company-wide endeavor, but a way of life. We are proud to be a part of this select group that strives to make the world a greener place.”
The company’s early interest in keeping harbors and oceans clean has developed into a strong company culture of EcoStewardship. Recent examples of the company’s environmental work include: the repowering of the company’s tugboat Tioga, in the Pacific Northwest, and the Goliah, in Northern California.
Crowley has also received special recognition by several environmentally focused organizations, including the Chamber of Shipping of America’s Jones F. Devlin Awards for Safety, the U.S. Coast Guard’s William Benkert award for environmental excellence, the Washington Department of Ecology’s Exceptional Compliance Program (ECOPRO) Award, the Pacific States/British Columbia Oil Spill Task Force’s Legacy Award, and the San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan Air Quality Award.
