Norwegian Sun Earns Environmental Award From Port of San Francisco Green award recognizes NCL’s environmental standards and practices

Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) today announced that Norwegian Sun received the Port of San Francisco’s Cruise Ship Environmental Award.

The Port’s program recognizes annually those cruise ships whose on-board environmental systems help decrease air and water pollution. The three categories evaluated are air emission reduction, wastewater treatment and recycling and disposal programs for solid waste.

“It’s an honor for Norwegian Sun to be recognized by the Port of San Francisco for our exemplary environmental systems and practices,” said Bill Hamlin, NCL’s executive vice president of fleet operations. “With our clean fuel strategy using low-sulfur fuels while in port, along with reducing air emissions, advanced wastewater treatment and recycling and disposal of solid waste, we have demonstrated our commitment to maintaining the highest level of environmental protection standards.”

The Cruise Ship Environmental Award was created by the Port of San Francisco’s Cruise Terminal Environmental Advisory Committee (CTEAC). Established in 2003, CTEAC advises the Port Commission on cruise ship-related water and air quality issues.
