Marine environment
There is a strong and sincere focus on the marine environment in the shipping business today. Several new technologies have been developed to help protect the marine environment from different aspects of pollution.

We believe in the advancement of clean technology and its role as solution for many environmental problems without losing the benefits of a modern society. Knowledge of marine biology is necessary in both defining the environmental risks as well as finding ways to eliminate the same risks.
