Blue Circle Awards

Our Blue Circle Awards are one way we celebrate our port community partners who are operating in a way that supports a healthy environment in and around the Port of Vancouver.

Blue Circle Awards recognize:

  • Shipping companies that have invested in technologies and practices that meet or exceed regulatory requirements and have the greatest fleet-wide participation in our EcoAction Program
  • Terminal operators and other tenants who have taken steps toward energy efficiency and conservation through our Energy Action initiative
