Become a Brand Ambassador
Being a Brand Ambassador is an easy way to help reduce ship strikes to endangered whales, air pollution, and regional greenhouse gas emissions while highlighting your company's commitment to sustainable shipping. It is free and does not require any changes to your shipping schedule.
How Brand Ambassadors Make a Difference
Since there is currently no mandatory slow speed regulation on the West Coast of California, endangered whales, air quality, and emissions reductions rely on voluntary compliance from shipping vessels. When their customers (you!) show that you are paying attention and that you care, the shipping companies respond, resulting in better environmental outcomes for everyone. Brand Ambassadors make a difference by:
Shipping with at least one of our VSR participants
Creating a press release to announce your enrollment as an ambassador (templates available)
Distributing letter(s) to your maritime freight carriers that congratulates them or encourages them to participate in the VSR program
Granting us use of your logo for outreach materials
Acknowledging carrier VSR participants in your annual sustainability reporting
