Congratulations go out to the 13 shipping lines, four coastal marine operators and two terminal operators who were recognized for voluntary efforts to conserve energy and reduce emissions at the Port of Vancouver. The port authority’s Blue Circle awards were presented to port customers that excel in environmental stewardship and attain the highest level of participation in the port authority’s voluntary environmental programs such as the EcoAction Program and the Energy Action Initiative. Since 2007, the port authority’s EcoAction Program has provided discounts of up to 47% on harbour dues for ship operators who follow environmental best practices. In 2020, over 750 vessels were awarded with an EcoAction discount, saving nearly $1.6 million in harbour dues. Click here to see the full list of winners.
