Maersk Line, Limited (MLL) wins two awards for its continued efforts to improve the environmental sustainability of its operations.

MLL received awards from the Chamber of Shipping of America (CSA) and the North American Marine Environment Protection Association (NAMEPA).

Thirty-nine vessels operated by MLL were awarded Certificates of Environmental Achievement from CSA at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, DC. To be eligible for the award, a vessel must have at least a two-year period with no reportable spills, no U.S. Coast Guard citations for violations of MARPOL, no port state citations for violations of MARPOL, and no violations of state/local pollution regulations. Admiral John P. Currier, USCG, Vice Commandant presented the certificates during the Chamber of Shipping 9th annual dinner award program.

Not long afterwards, NAMEPA, a nongovernmental organization committed to preserving the marine environment,  awarded MLL the Corporate Agency Marine Environment Protection Award during an event celebrating their fifth year anniversary. This award was given to MLL in recognition of its efforts to preserve the marine environment. As an honoree, MLL was recognized for their efforts to “Save the Sea”, a NAMEPA goal that encourages the maritime industry to practice and promote the protection of the marine environment.
