Northwest Indiana Partners for Clean Air has recognized the region’s top air quality leaders, including the Ports of Indiana-Burns Harbor.
Four awards were presented for voluntary actions taken to improve air quality during 2021.
The Ports of Indiana-Burns Harbor received the Industrial Award for multiple clean air projects undertaken by the port and its tenants in 2020, according to a news release.
The port secured funding through the Indiana Office of Energy Development’s grant program to add an all-electric security vehicle to its operations in Burns Harbor. It also received grant funding in 2020 through the Indiana Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Trust Fund grant program for the installation of an electric vehicle charging station.
All three of the Ports of Indiana's three locations again received the Green Marine certification in 2020, the first state-wide port authority to achieve such distinction. Green Marine is the leading environmental certification program for North America’s maritime transportation industry.
