Corporate Social Responsibility
For Thenamaris Ships Management Inc. the concept of corporate social responsibility (CSR) is deeply embedded in the company’s culture. Even though the idea of CSR is relatively new, Thenamaris since the early 1990’s (i.e. before the CSR era) had started, of course without knowing that the CSR ideology will become so important in every company’s existence, creating and advancing CSR principles.
Corporate Social Responsibility is an ideology by which companies have the duty to consider the interests of their stakeholder’s (customers, employees, investors, communities, the environment, etc.) for the full scope of their activities. Moreover, this duty has to always extend beyond companies’ regulatory obligations.
Thenamaris’ slogan (Forward & Beyond) was born from one single idea; that is, beyond regulation, beyond compliance, beyond the necessary. We are proud to state that many of today’s industry standards, best practices, and even regulatory statutes, came to life because of Thenamaris’ mode of operations and paradigm to the shipping industry.
Many practices used by the company in the past which were at the time not compulsory by organizations such the IMO (International Maritime Organization), by the flag States, or by major clients, have presently become regulation or key compliance points.
Looking ahead, Thenamaris will continue trying to excel even further its commitment to the CSR concept by finding new innovative ways to operate the ships under its management.
