In today’s world industry and society, environmental protection and preservation is ever more important. Many companies and individuals have recognized that they can reduce pollution and conduct business in a way that will help protect our natural environment. The biggest challenge of today’s industry is to develop a truly sustainable global economy; that is an economy that the planet is capable of supporting indefinitely.
For Thenamaris Ships Management Inc. these ideas are entrenched in our way of thinking and operating. We fully understand the risks and dangers involved in the carriage of cargoes such as crude oil and we recognize that in any given moment during our operations a mishandling can potentially harm the natural environment.
As we are faced with these challenges and we realize the dangers imposed by our business, we proactively take steps to eliminate the chances of pollution.
Being environmentally responsive and trying to preserve ecological balances, Thenamaris takes actions towards this end. Maintaining to the highest standards hull machinery and equipment, using environmentally friendly methods for clean ballast water exchange management, carefully discharging to shore reception facilities slops from ships’ dirty ballast or tank washings, and carefully controlling the disposal of waste and used items, all aim at this objective.
Further, we make certain to consume high quality fuels for minimizing emissions, to use tin (lead free paints), and to avoid any ozone depleting substances such as toxic refrigerants.
We always strive to improve procedures aimed at the protection of the environment. We not only fully comply with the industry’s regulations in environmental issues but we invest further to this end.
