The Pasha Group Recognized by NAMEPA for Exemplary ESG Practices Awarded the Maritime Sustainability Passport & Seal for the Second Consecutive Year

WESTON, CT – In an official announcement, Carleen Lyden Walker, Co-Founder and CEO of The North American Marine Environment Protection Association (NAMEPA) revealed that its prestigious “Maritime Sustainability Passport®” (MSP) Certificate and MSP Seal have been granted to The Pasha Group for the second consecutive year. Recognized for their unwavering commitment to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices, The Pasha Group has successfully fulfilled all the requirements of the program and earned NAMEPA’s MSP Certificate and Seal.

The MSP Program, comprising NAMEPA’s six Transparency Pillars—Waste Management, GHG Emissions, Education, Technology, Social, and Governance—evaluates companies based on their ESG metrics. The Pasha Group has showcased its dedication to the marine environment by demonstrating compliance with each of these pillars. This significant achievement is a testament to The Pasha Group’s proactive efforts to promote sustainability and responsible business practices in the maritime industry.

“The Pasha Group is thrilled to announce our continued recognition with the NAMEPA Maritime Sustainability Passport® for our second year! This achievement underscores our team’s unwavering dedication and proactive efforts in fostering sustainability within our operations. It’s a testament to our commitment to shaping a more sustainable future and reflects the hard work of every member of our organization. We’re proud to be part of driving positive change in the maritime industry,” remarked Kai Martin, VP Chief Sustainability Officer.

The Pasha Group operates in both the maritime and automotive shipping worlds with a long-time focus on environmental protection. Prior to receiving their MSP, The Pasha Group’s Pacific Fleet was awarded Certificates of Environmental Achievement by the Chamber of Shipping of America for operating a total of 68 years in environmental excellence, demonstrating a long-term commitment to environmentally aware practices. Furthermore, by officially receiving their MSP, The Pasha Group has proven that their dedication is not just spoken but tangible, aligning them even further with NAMEPA’s mission to promote industry best practices and to Save Our Seas.

The Pasha Group successfully passed NAMEPA’s MSP Program and qualified for the MSP Certificate & Seal, signifying they met or exceeded the program’s guidelines of best practices using ESG principles. Some of the program’s many benefits include increased efficiency, stakeholder visibility, and positive global impact.

The Maritime Sustainability Passport® (MSP) Program was developed by the North American Marine Environment Protection Association and ESGplus LLC  as an innovative ESG assessment tool tailored specifically for the maritime industry. Launched in June 2020, the tool enables companies, associations, educators, and individuals in the industry to evaluate their adherence to ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) principles.
