Seattle Maritime Environmental Business Awards Presented

By Mark Edward Nero

Holland America Line was among the recipients of environmental and community leadership awards given out recently during the 63rd Annual Maritime Festival Luncheon May 15 at the 2014 Seattle Maritime Festival.

The Annual Maritime Festival Luncheon, sponsored by Vigor Industrial, Port of Seattle and the Seattle Propeller Club, is used by the maritime community to showcase individuals and businesses in Puget Sound.

The Marine Environmental Business Awards component of the luncheon spotlights the Pacific Northwest maritime industry’s environmental leadership and commitment to the Port of Seattle’s environmental initiatives.

“We’re pleased to salute Holland America Line for their environmental leadership,” Seattle Port Commission Co-President Courtney Gregoire said during the awards ceremony. “From reducing air pollution and increasing recycling to serving 100 percent sustainable seafood, Holland America Line continues to serve as a tremendous community partner.”
