Welcome to the Zodiac Maritime Agencies Environment web pages. Here you can find all the latest news on ZMA's Environmental Policy, our environmental activities and performance, and information about the innovative work in which we are currently involved, which is aimed at reducing the fleet's environmental impact for now and for the years to come.
Shipping is a major contributor to economic growth. Around 90% of the goods transported around the world are carried by sea. In terms of CO2 emissions, studies have shown that by volume of goods carried, shipping is already the most efficient form of transport - but we recognise that there is always more that could be done to reduce our vessels' impacts on the environment.

Our aim is to become an industry leader in the development and implementation of environmentally friendly technology, practises and procedures. Through recognition of our possible environmental impacts, and innovation in technology and operations through projects with academic and industry partners, Zodiac Maritime Agencies aims to be recognised for its environmentally friendly ships and management.
Our Environmental Team is focusing on three core objectives which we believe are critical to improving our environmental performance:
- Reducing emissions to air of CO2, SOx, NOx, CFCs and PMs
- Reducing fuel consumption, and improving energy efficiency
- Improving and maintaining effective pollution prevention systems
to view our environmental policy.
