COSCO, Navigator Gas LLC, and BC Ferries – are being honoured for their outstanding participation in the Prince Rupert Port Authority’s (PRPA) Green Wave program in 2023. Additionally, the owners of bulk carrier, Key Guardian, and cruise vessel, Roald Amundsen, are recognized for using underwater noise mitigation technology. The Green Wave program, initiated in 2013, incentivizes environmentally sustainable measures in commercial vessels by offering reduced harbour fees based on emissions and noise performance. PRPA’s President and CEO, Shaun Stevenson, commended the recipients for their continued investment in sustainable transportation. The program aligns with PRPA’s commitment to environmental stewardship and has led to significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, equivalent to removing thousands of passenger vehicles from the road annually. PRPA aims to further reduce carbon intensity by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
