With a combined 840 years without an environmental incident, 84 Foss Maritime and subsidiary companies' tugs and tank barges have been recognized by a major maritime organization for their environmental safety records.
The Chamber of Shipping of America (CSA) announced the 2014 Environmental Achievement Awards honoring the Seattle, WA. company's work on Nov. 13, 2014, in Washington, D.C. Foss and its sister companies have seen an average of 10 years without an environmental incident, with 12 vessels achieving 20-plus years of environmental excellence, including the Stellar Wind and the Arthur Foss.
"At Foss, environmental stewardship is built into our culture," says Paul Stevens, president and CEO. "Plus, our customers demand it. So, having 84 vessels recognized for environmental merit really underscores the importance of this commitment."
The awards are open to all owners and operators of vessels that operate on oceans or inland waterways.More ›
