New Zealand and Australia

Both countries were visited by Green Award in September. To over 30 stakeholders a presentation on Green Award was given and debated.

The advantages of the holistic Green Award system were discussed and in general there was a very positive response to the Green Award Scheme as a tool to enhance sustainable trade in the region. The Scheme was valued as complementary to existing regulations, safety measures and industry vetting schemes.

The aim of the Scheme to exert a positive influence on the quality of ships and safe and environment conscious shipping activity in coastal waters and at the ship/port interface was well recognised.

For the near future, we will coordinate with established as well as new industry and government partners for possible implementation of the system.

Watch this space for future developments!
