Green environmental achievement award
Thorco Shipping has received the Green Environmental Achievement Award and thereby the Port of Long Beach Green Flag for their excellent performance in speed reduction and fuel savings.
Complying with the Voluntary Vessel Speed Reduction Program in 2014, Thorco Shipping has slowed down its fleets within the port of Long Beach securing significant fuel savings resulting in the reduction of air pollution in Southern California.
Besides receiving a green flag as a symbol of this sustainable initiative, Thorco Shipping can also look forward to reductions in dockage payable to the Port of Long Beach as an incentive to keep up the green development.
