Join a powerful network of maritime industry professionals in this
introductory workshop

NAMEPA’s CSR/ESG Maritime Sustainability Program remains the only assessment program designed specifically for the maritime industry featuring all three elements of sustainability- the E, the S, and the G. Since its launch in 2020, many companies have matriculated through the program and earned their Maritime Sustainability Passport (MSP).

The use of ESG as a tool for measuring companies and their performance is widely recognized as important, but there is still a lack of understanding of its principles and benefits. To overcome this, NAMEPA is launching its ESG 101 Workshop for promoting Corporate Maritime Sustainability.

Commenced on June 16th, 2022, and being offered monthly, the program is open to NAMEPA members, nonmembers and all maritime stakeholders who wish to understand more about Environmental, Social and Governance in the Maritime Industry.

After successfully completing an assessment, participants will discuss their results and receive a certificate demonstrating their participation and commitment to ESG.
