Today we celebrate World Maritime Day 2022 with the theme: New Technologies for Greener Shipping.
International shipping is responsible for more than 80% of global trade. Therefore, the adoption of new technologies for sustainable maritime development is a priority. We need a safe, secure, and efficient shipping industry, transitioning to a green future.
In this context, the focus on innovation, education, and maritime infrastructure are some of the key activities that the maritime players have to consider in the following years.
The celebration also links to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with a focus on climate action, sustainable use of oceans, and industry, among others.
Since 2002, the environment is one of our core values at Mr. Marine. We embed sustainable practices in our daily activities and in the business that we conduct. Through Mr. Marine Ballast, we minimise the risks of invasive species in our global waters, ensuring the vessels comply with the Ballast Water Management Convention.
Together we can take the lead in building a sustainable maritime future!
