The Port of Hueneme recently netted the California Green Business Network Certification and the 2020 Outstanding Business Catalyst Award.
The green certification is issued by the EPA-funded and CARB-assisted nonprofit California Green Business Network, which is designed to help public agencies and utilities team up with businesses to exceed environmental standards.
The 2020 Outstanding Business Catalyst Award was bestowed by the Oxnard Chamber of Commerce to honor the port’s impact on the local economy.
“What a great way to begin the New Year! Having both the business and environmental communities recognize the work the port is doing affirms that we truly are leading our community in green job growth.” Jess Ramirez, Oxnard Harbor District President stated,” Our community knows that if the port is involved, the job gets done right and in the greenest way possible.”
