Become an Ambassador
Being an Ambassador is an easy way to showcase your company's commitment to sustainable shipping while reducing ship strikes to endangered whales, air pollution, regional greenhouse gas emissions, and underwater noise. Consumer goods brands, retailers, ports, freight forwarders and logistics companies are encouraged to become Ambassadors.
It is free and does not require any changes to your shipping schedule.

Appear on our the Protecting Blue Whales and Blue Skies website and annual reporting, videos, webinars, and event panels.
How Ambassadors Make a Difference
For more information, see the Ambassador brochure.
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. 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
