Pro Sea Foundation: "The Sea is worth the effort"

Large groups of people work professionally with or at sea: the ‘Marine Professionals’. For these people the sea is even more important. This brings along a special responsibility.

Therefore Marine Professionals need to have a basic understanding of how the sea functions, where it is vulnerable, how our activities affect the sea and what a sector, a company or an individual can actually do to ‘work’ as sustainable as possible. The ProSea foundation stimulates, develops and organises Marine Environmental Courses for Marine Professionals.”

A course was held on the island Texel, The Netherlands in October of this year. Green Award was happy to contribute to this course by delivering a presentation on Green Award and what Green Award stands for. It was good to experience that the attending Marine Professionals are fully aware of the consequences of environmentally friendly operation of ship and crew.

Green Award is a firm supporter of this course and has incorporated it into the ranking criteria for the Green Award certification:

7300.7 Is the company providing training/courses for ship's personnel and superintendents with respect to "Marine Environmental Awareness"(training programs to be recognised/supported by the administration).
