Environmental Management

We were first certified with ISO 14001 in 2001 - we were one of the first ship management companies to implement it, and since then we have passed our annual audits by Lloyd's Register to maintain our certification.

The ISO 14001 certification is an ongoing management planning tool for implementing environmental management procedures. Based on the principles plan - implement - monitor - evaluate - plan, it promotes ongoing improvement through continuous monitoring and evaluation.

Every year a sample of our ships are audited - as well as our central ISO 14001 Environmental Management Plan. Any opportunities for improvement identified during the audit process are considered for adoption into our system. We monitor for new legislative and regulatory requirements and regularly update the fleet on environmental and safety issues. Our Environmental Management Plans and Safety Procedures are regularly reviewed and updated so that they follow the current developments and support the scope of our organisation.

We provide extensive training on environmental matters, both on shore and on board, and our training requirements are periodically evaluated to ensure they stay up to date.
