BP Shipping: why Green Award?


BP Shipping has been associated with Green Award since 1999, when we obtained certification of three vessels as one of several initiatives to focus our attention on environmentally sound operations. We also obtained ISO 14001 certification in 1999 and have found that Green Award provides an additional dimension to our own efforts in operating an Environmental Management System.

Although the geographical spread of our operations does not permit us to benefit substantially from the financial incentives which are part of the Green Award concept, we do obtain sufficient savings to offset a large part of the costs.

By the end of 2003 we will have 9 vessels with Green Award certification and although this is only a small proportion of our total fleet we are firm believers in the Green Award process and the operational and financial benefits which stem from it.
