From Tallinn to Tokyo and from Venice to Vancouver: the Green Award Foundation is active all over the world with the certification scheme for dry bulk carriers and oil tankers that go above and beyond the set standards in cleanliness and safety. All efforts are made to benefit the marine environment, including cleaner seas.

Efforts and benefits are also key issues for the ship owners. Admitted, it is quite an effort to meet the stringent Green Award requirements. But once certified and proven to be more environmentally friendly, the ship owners reap various benefits like

• Discount on port dues
• Charter preference
• Continuous improvement
• Lower costs
• Lower insurance premiums
• Acceptation by PSC / vetting inspections
• Quality more visible
• Better image
• Motivation and pride of crew
• Less incidents






Green Award Incentive Providers

At ports in The Netherlands, Belgium, Canada, Lithuania, Oman, Portugal, South Africa, and in New Zealand the Green Award vessels get a premium incentive based on port dues. Private companies also appreciate the extra quality, which Green Award guarantees. Several interesting incentive providers, government institutions as well as private companies, grant premiums to a vessel with a Green Award certificate. The Green Award Foundation approaches authorities and industries in all seaports to create a platform for further growth of the number of incentive providers.
