During the tenth-annual Chamber of Shipping of America (CSA) awards ceremony held in Washington DC , Crowley Maritime Corporation was awarded with 100 Certificates of Environmental Achievement for 2013 – more than any other company in the running.

The certificates were awarded to Crowley-owned and operated vessels for having worked at least two consecutive years without an environmental incident. Additionally, Crowley was also presented with a membership award in recognition of five years of support to the CSA.

The Environmental Achievement awards are open to all owners and operators of vessels that work on oceans or inland waterways. This year, nearly 1,431 vessels from 76 companies, including Crowley, were recognized. In total, the honored vessels accumulated 10,282 years of safe operations, with a vessel average of 6.9 years. Two hundred and eighty of the vessels have logged more than 10 years each of environmental excellence.

Combined, Crowley’s vessels achieved a total of 1,066 years of service without incident. Fifty-three of Crowley’s vessels have gone without incident for 10 or more consecutive years, including the following: Saturn, 44 years; Kuparuk River, 43 years; Kavik River, 38 years; Pt. Oliktok and Stalwart, each with 31 years.

Crowley has been honored with Environmental Achievement Awards each year, since at least 2005.
“As the company’s No. 1 core value, safety is always in the forefront of our minds,” said Mike Golonka, vice president, ship management. "This recognition is a testament to the rigorous work of our crews who ensure that our vessels operate safely and in an environmentally responsible manner. We are honored to be recognized with these awards again in 2013.”
