NOVEMBER 20, 2013 — The tenth-annual Chamber of Shipping of America (CSA) awards ceremony held in Washington, D.C., this week saw Crowley Maritime Corporation being awarded 100 Certificates of Environmental Achievement for 2013 – more than any other company in the running. The certificates were awarded to Crowley-owned and operated vessels for having worked at least two consecutive years without an environmental incident. Additionally, Crowley was also presented with a membership award in recognition of five years of support to the CSA.

The Environmental Achievement awards are open to all owners and operators of vessels that work on oceans or inland waterways. This year, nearly 1,431 vessels from 76 companies, including Crowley, were recognized. In total, the honored vessels accumulated 10,282 years of safe operations, with a vessel average of 6.9 years. Two hundred and eighty of the vessels have logged more than 10 years each of environmental excellence.

Combined, Crowley's vessels achieved a total of 1,066 years of service without incident. Fifty-three of Crowley's vessels have gone without incident for 10 or more consecutive years, including the following: Saturn, 44 years; Kuparuk River, 43 years; Kavik River, 38 years; Pt. Oliktok and Stalwart, each with 31 years.

Crowley has been honored with Environmental Achievement Awards each year, since at least 2005.

"As the company's No. 1 core value, safety is always in the forefront of our minds," said Mike Golonka, vice president, ship management. "This recognition is a testament to the rigorous work of our crews who ensure that our vessels operate safely and in an environmentally responsible manner. We are honored to be recognized with these awards again in 2013."

Accepting the awards on behalf of Crowley were Golonka; Jeff Hoffman, chief engineer, National Glory; Vince Mull, chief engineer, Achievement/650-8; Ralph Elroy, captain, Cape Decision; and Jeff Siefert, chief engineer, Charleston Express.

Joseph J. Cox, president of CSA said, "These awards celebrate the dedication to environmental excellence of our seafarers and the company personnel shoreside who operate our vessels to the highest standards. 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. It should be clear to the American public that we in the maritime industry take our stewardship of the marine environment very seriously."
