For the second straight year, Campion Marine is a winner of a Green Business Award through the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce in British Columbia.

The award recognizes environmentally sustainable practices.

"It is fantastic that our goal to become the green boatbuilder is being recognized, and it is definitely an honor to receive this award two years in a row," general manager Brock Elliott said in a statement. "We are continuously motivated to search out the best products and practices to improve our boats, for the environment and the boater."

Campion builds all of its boats using a renewably sourced bio-derived resin. Envirez resin uses a substantial amount of soybean oil and corn-derived ethanol in its formulation, the company said.

Campion Marine has been building high-performance sportboats and cruisers for 36 years. The company builds more than 37 models and 48 variations of boats, ranging from 16 to 30 feet.
