  1. Be aware of your company’s carbon footprint, and pressure reporting companies to make the process more transparent, and simpler for all to understand.
  2. Recognise that carbon reduction has a cost and everyone should pay their share.
  3. Regular hull cleaning to increase fuel efficiency.
  4. Dispose of hull fouling responsibly to prevent pollution and transfer of invasive marine species.

  6. Commit to looking after the one thing that pays our wages – the sea.
