In 2015, the United Nations adopted a number of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which provide the pathway for a more sustainable future. These goals address the most critical challenges of our time, such as eradicating poverty, creating equal access to education, preserving the environment and stopping climate change.
While we support all of the SDGs, we are mainly focused on six of them, which we believe are the most relevant to our business and for which we could potentially contribute:
We give great significance to the training and education of our on-board and on-shore employees. In this context, we have created a modern training program for our seafarers in safety-related items and announced a scholarship program.
We are affiliated with HELMEPA and CYMEPA, the voluntary associations of Greek & Cypriot seafarers and ship owners to safeguard the seas from ship-generated pollution. We are also members of the Clean Shipping Alliance, whose mission is to provide information and data on the environmental performance and benefits of open-loop scrubbers.
