The IMO’s vision for the shipping industry is to eliminate, or reduce to the bare minimum, all adverse environmental impacts of ships. In line with that objective, TMS’ Environmental Protection Award recognises the contribution made by an organisation or company towards achieving the maritime industry’s goal of preventing harm to the natural environment. That could include measures or technology to protect underwater marine life and ecosystems or to enhance air quality, for example. Nominees can submit examples of technical and operational initiatives which have already reduced underwater or air pollution caused by maritime activity, either at sea or in port, or which will allow the maritime sector to do so in future. It will also be open to those companies that have introduced more environmentally sustainable ways of working, or which have carried out specific projects to protect, or repair parts of the natural environment damaged by, or at risk from shipping activity.
All entries must be received by Tuesday, 1st September 2020.
