Green Award Incentive Providers

At ports in The Netherlands, Belgium, Canada, Lithuania, Oman, Portugal, South Africa, and in New Zealand the Green Award vessels get a premium incentive based on port dues. Private companies also appreciate the extra quality, which Green Award guarantees. Several interesting incentive providers, government institutions as well as private companies, grant premiums to a vessel with a Green Award certificate. The Green Award Foundation approaches authorities and industries in all seaports to create a platform for further growth of the number of incentive providers.
