Crowley Marine Services' Receives Environmental Protection Award

Wednesday, July 19, 2000
The U. S. Coast Guard presented Crowley Marine Services with the William M. Benkert Award, which is the premier national award recognizing excellence in marine environmental protection. The award was presented by Rear Admiral R.C. North, Assistant Commandant for Marine Safety and Environmental Protection, U.S. Coast Guard, to Tom Crowley, Jr., chairman, president and CEO of Crowley Maritime, CMS' parent company, during the American Petroleum Institute Tanker Conference in La Jolla, Calif. Charlie Nalen, vice president, Environmental Affairs, Safety & Quality for Crowley Maritime Corporation, was also in attendance to accept the award on behalf of the company.

The Coast Guard said Crowley was selected for the award because as vessel and facilities operators, Crowley had "implemented outstanding marine environmental protection programs - programs that far exceed mere compliance with industrial and regulatory standards."
