Our corporate citizenship program extends to the communities where our employees work and live and where our vessels trade. We support a variety of non-profit organizations and marine industry associations and have responded to societal needs and humanitarian crises as they arise in our local communities.
Many of our shoreside employees and seafarers initiate socially responsible volunteer and fundraising activities on their own accord at the local level with the full support of the Company. These activities tend to support maritime industry concerns, green/environmental efforts, health concerns or local social needs.
OSG’s environmental, safety and humanitarian efforts are continually recognized by various stakeholder groups. The Chamber of Shipping of America awards nearly all OSG vessels with certificates of environmental achievement for operating without a spill to sea for a two-year period or greater. The Chamber also presents the Jones F. Devlin Safety Awards to vessels that operate for a full two years or more without a loss time injury. OSG’s fleet is always well represented in both of these awards programs.
