In a statement Jan Fransen remarked: ‘The challenge of the Green Award’s second decade offers a great opportunity to build on the Green Award achievements up until now. We will continue to follow our passage plan which has been set and will add some new way points. One of our goals is to establish partnerships with other organizations in order to harmonize and minimize the number of inspections on board the vessels. And most of all: to continue to promote quality shipping."
