Become an Ambassador

Being an Ambassador is an easy way to showcase a commitment to sustainable shipping that reduces ship strike risk to endangered whales, air and noise pollution, and regional greenhouse gas emissions. Ambassadors include consumer goods, brands, retailers, ports, freight forwarders and logistics companies.



  • Receive environmental impact data including emissions and strike risk reductions for the carriers you work with

  • Get recognized in popular corporate sustainability and logistics media outlets

  • Receive our Communications Toolkit (photos, media assets, templates) and program logo

  • Demonstrate your corporate sustainability efforts 

  • Appear on our website, in our annual reporting, videos, webinars, and event panels. 

How Ambassadors Make a Difference

There are currently no mandatory slow speed regulations on the West Coast of California. By creating seasonal and predictable voluntary slow speed zones for shipping vessels, this program helps protect endangered whales, reduce fuel use, air and noise pollution and regional greenhouse gas emissions. When shipping customers (you) show that you are paying attention and support these efforts, shipping companies respond, resulting in better environmental outcomes.  Ambassadors make a difference by:
