GALVESTON WHARVES EARNS INDUSTRY AWARD FOR ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITMENT

The Galveston Wharves has garnered national recognition for its commitment to environmental improvement through the Green Marine program. 
 
The American Association of Port Authorities (AAPA) recently recognized the port with an Award of Distinction in Environmental Improvement: Comprehensive Management at its annual convention in Austin. 
 
From improving air quality to reducing waste, Galveston Wharves is identifying impactful ways to make long-term changes to improve the environment. Guided by Green Marine, a voluntary environmental program for North America’s maritime industry, the port staff is researching, planning and implementing a number of environmental programs.
 
Galveston Wharves Port Director and CEO Rodger Rees said, “We are honored to receive national attention for our commitment to Green Marine and the environment. I hope it inspires others in the maritime industry to consider joining Green Marine.” 
 
Galveston Wharves was certified in June, making it only the second Texas port participating in the program. Joining Green Marine helps the port identify and implement best practices, manage environmental initiatives, measure progress, and strive for continuous improvement, Rees said. 
 
AAPA is a trade association founded in 1912 and based in Alexandria, Va. It represents more than 150 port authorities in the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, and Latin America.
