“We participated in the MSP Program because it is crucial to underscore our commitment to the environment and enhance our company’s integrity. These programs help us elevate our standards and align with international expectations.”Maritime Procurement Services

“The MSP Program is a complex verification which gives us an opportunity to review our standards and see if they are enough to reach ESG standards. It is our ambition to be the leading company in our industry. To have the MSP Seal is a great opportunity to show our clients that we are a trustful company, well organized with implemented high environmental protection and social standards.” – Siem Ship Management

This course invites the maritime sector and you, as a maritime professional, to get involved by discussing subjects related to sustainable shipping and MARPOL regulations. This program underscores the valuable role played by the maritime industry as important to global society both on land and at sea. 

Broken down into 5 E-learning modules, participants explore sustainable shipping and the importance of the marine environment by outlining how liquid waste, solid waste, energy and climate change impact the marine environment. 

NAMEPA’s MARPOL guide and webinar series was developed to assist seafarers and shoreside personnel to better understand MARPOL regulations, why regulations are needed to preserve the marine environment, and how to better comply.
