The Port of Long Beach's Green Flag and Green Ship annual awards honored 20 shipping lines for efforts to improve air quality.

Efforts to improve air quality locally were accomplished by slowing ships down or deploying cleaner vessels, or both.

The Port’s Green Flag Program was created in 2005 and participation today is nearly universal. In 2012, almost 96 percent of all ships calling at Long Beach slowed to 12 knots within 20 nautical miles of the Port. In 2009, the Port added the 40 nautical mile option and last year, more than 83 percent of vessels slowed from 40 nautical miles. Slower ships burn less fuel, producing less pollution. Thirteen shipping lines were found to be top performers, earning Green Flags this

These programs offer financial incentives. Green Flag participants were awarded $2.5 million in dockage fee discounts in 2012. And since the Green Ship Program began in July 2012, the Port has awarded $135,000 in incentives.
