Eighty-five Crowley vessels and their crews have been recognized by the Chamber of Shipping of America (CSA) for a cumulative 782 years of safe environmental practices and operations.

The Environmental Achievement Awards, presented annually by the CSA, commend vessels and mariners that demonstrate an outstanding safety record with no reportable spills, no U.S. Coast Guard environmental citations or other pollution incidents.

The latest awards were given out Nov. 14.

The Crowley-owned and – managed vessels recognized by the CSA span diverse categories, including tugs, barges, containerships, tank vessels and company-managed government ships operating globally.

Crowley has said that its commitment to environmental stewardship is built on safety, training and sustainable operations everywhere the company serves.

“We are thrilled to be recognized once again for our safety and environmental stewardship,” Peter Sutton, Crowley Shipping’s Vice President of Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE) and Operations Integrity said.

“This acknowledgment,” he added, “is a true testament to the hard work and dedication of our mariners and underscores Crowley’s commitment to sustainability and safety within its organization and the maritime industry.”
