NAMEPA Marine Environment Protection Awards Nominations Open

NAMEPA (North American Marine Environment Protection Association) annually recognizes companies, educators, associations, government agencies, academic institutions and individuals whose efforts support our mission to "Save Our Seas". Since our inception, NAMEPA has been engaging maritime businesses, educators, government and the public to "Save our Seas" by promoting sound environmental practices. Previous recipients have included Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, Maersk, APL, Teekay Corporation, the United States Coast Guard, Massachusetts Maritime Academy, National Geographic, NOAA and others.

Entries for the 2018 NAMEPA Awards are now being accepted. Interested organizations are urged to consider making a submission for one of the 2018 NAMEPA Awards categories listed here in the Award Criteria. The deadline for the submissions will be August 20th. All submissions will then be carefully reviewed by the NAMEPA Board of Directors and a recipient selected in each qualifying category. The winner will be notified no later than September 4th. This year's NAMEPA Awards will be presented at our annual NAMEPA Awards Dinner that will be held in New York on October 25th. It is expected that for each category, the winner's senior executive will be present to receive the award, as well as participate in a Senior Leadership Roundtable discussion on Corporate Risk Management that afternoon.
