CHAMBER OF SHIPPING ENVIRONMENTAL ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS TO MM&P-CREWED SHIPS

December 5th 2018

A number of MM&P-crewed vessels have received certificates of environmental achievement from the Chamber of Shipping of America (CSA).

Among the MM&P employers whose ships have been recognized for 2018 are American Ship Management, AMNAV Maritime Services, Marine Transport Management, Matson, Moran, Patriot Contract Services and Reinauer.

The MV EDWIN H. GOTT and the MV ROGER BLOUGH, operated by members of the MM&P United Inland Group-Great Lakes & Gulf Region, have also been recognized by CSA for environmental excellence.

The average number of years operating without incident for all vessels recognized in 2018 is 8.1 years.

“These awards celebrate the dedication to environmental excellence of our seafarers and the company personnel shore-side who operate our vessels to the highest standards,” said CSA President Kathy J. Metcalf.

“In today’s world, it seems our industry only gets front-page news when spills or other environmental problems occur.”

“It is encouraging to see how many vessels go for years achieving environmental excellence. Safe and environmentally responsible operations is a culture fully embraced by the maritime industry as a whole and as evidenced by the performances of the award recipients.”

The CSA’s annual awards for environmental excellence are open to all owners and operators of vessels sailing on oceans or inland waterways.
