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

Terminal operators
As the port authority was not able to offer on-site Energy Management Assessment workshops during the pandemic, we unfortunately were not able to consider terminal operators for a Blue Circle Award. We look forward to relaunching these workshops and reconnecting with our terminal operators in the years ahead.

Award highlights: 

  • Westwood Shipping Lines have been awarded every year since the inaugural awards in 2009 
  • Hapag-Lloyd has been recognized twelve times
