How does our company benefit from joining Green Award if we already have vetting and compulsory Class inspections?
Green Award motivates the crew to work in compliance with higher standards. The scheme is well-known and recognized in the shipping industry which gives a high value to its certificates. Green Award certificate holders benefit from the positive image showing their corporate social responsibility and environmental awareness by participating in the scheme. Apart from that, certificate holders receive various incentives (financial and operational) from the industry stakeholders such as ports and maritime service providers.
