Hueneme Green

By Karen Robes Meeks

Earlier this month, the Port of Hueneme garnered honors for its eco-friendly efforts at the Green Shipping Summit in Los Angeles.

The port received “The Greenest Port of the Year” award, while Port Director/CEO Kristin Decas was named “Maritime Executive of the Year”.

“In 2012, the Board of Harbor Commissioners made the bold and important decision of adopting an environmental framework to guide the port’s investments in environmentally sustainable practices and green technologies,” said Board President Jason Hodge. “Five years later, we are proud to say we have made those investments and the results are now being recognized nationally and internationally. We commit to our community to stay the course and continue to lead the way to a greener future.”
