April 22, 2013
The Port has been named one of three recipients of the 2013 Federal Maritime Commission's Chairman’s Earth Day Awards for its commitment to mitigating the environmental impacts of international shipping and for encouraging sustainability in Port operations.
The awards were announced Thursday, April 18. The selections were made in March by Richard A. Lidinsky Jr., who has since been replaced as chairman of the Maritime Commission by former Port commissioner Mario Cordero.
Lidinsky will present the awards at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. Tuesday, April 23.
Launched in 2010, the Earth Day Awards honor outstanding environmental contributions by stakeholders in the U.S. maritime and transportation industry.
