Public awareness, pressure groups and legal directives have forced Shipping companies to have a second look at their Environment Management practices and adopt ways to minimize pollution. Leading shipping companies are now beginning to seek ISO 14001 certification for their offices and for their ships. These companies are also rewarded with better business prospects and surprisingly even cost benefits.

IMTC has taken the lead in designing a course to suit the industry requirements and raise the awareness level of sea-going staff in Environmental Management Systems.
