The award recognizes environmental excellence and achievement in maritime operations by marine vessel and facility operators.

Loy. The objectives of the William M. Benkert Award are to : -Increase public awareness of the importance of protecting the marine environment; -Encourage adherence to the international environmental management system methods; -Encourage innovations in operations, maintenance, cargo handling, waste management, training and other industrial activities; and -Provide a means for winners to share their successful methods and techniques with others in the industry. Award applications are due by Nov. 15, 1999.
