|MPA member companies have set the highest standards for prevention
of oil spills in the marine environment. At the same time, they have
developed equally high principles for their contingency plans should
unexpected incidents and emergencies occur. To that end, member
companies have provided over $2 billion in funding for proven, effective
spill response capability through MPA grants to MSRC.
MPA members recognize that spill response and contingency planning go
far beyond mere compliance with regulatory-mandated baselines for oil
skimmer pump capacities and a “check in the box” mentality. They know
that funding MSRC’s robust, ‘end-to-end’ approach to the entire integrated
response system is the most responsible and successful way for a company
to plan to remove oil and mitigate its impact on the environment.
