Ocean Point Terminals strives to be a valued member of the community where we live and work. Our continued development of the terminal activities in St. Croix, drive economic stimulus and tax revenue for the local government, increasing the opportunities available to many U.S. Virgin Island residents. As part of its commitment to the community, Ocean Point Terminals dedicates considerable resources to support the local economy and its neighbors while minimizing the impact of the facility’s operations on the environment. Our employees routinely volunteer their time to initiatives that support education, environmental stewardship and community sustainability.
Ocean Point Terminals is committed to being a responsible member of the Virgin Islands community, and we have generously supported over 50 organizations and schools since we opened in 2016. The company provides more than $300,000 annually to local non-profits through our Charitable Contributions program, and our employees overwhelmingly donate and volunteer to the company’s community initiatives to assist those in need. Ocean Point Terminals invests in organizations that support the advancement of Education, Environmental Stewardship and Community Sustainability.
