    After the successful completion of the 2015 GREEN4SEA Forum that attracted 950 delegates we have started preparations for the 2015 SAFETY4SEA Forum where we look forward a record attendance as well. All our forums are FREE to attend subject to registration but as usual for those who may be missed it, content is available via Social Media platforms and YouTube or via subscription to the electronic editions of SAFETY4SEA or GREEN4SEA.

    On this edition, key coverage from the latest MEPC includes the adoption of the environmental requirements of the Polar Code and progress on ballast water. Industry is confident that the BW Convention is about to become effective soon as only 2,14% more of the world tonnage is still needed. Industry has expressed disappointment over the new EU MRV rules with the fear that IMO negotiations would be stepped aside. Also, there was strong reaction from NGOs when IMO decided not to proceed with an emissions reduction target at MEPC 68, a proposal presented by the Marshall Islands.

    For those wishing to support the GREEN4SEA please see the opposite of the back cover page to subscribe to either on the paper or the digital edition of the GREEN4SEA and stay tuned on the web and social media as always! We have also included a new subscription item, our Corporate Service pack, to enhance the Safety Culture across shipping companies and onboard managed vessels. Trust you enjoy this issue and stay tuned at www. green4sea.com for the latest updates. Finally we look forward welcoming you to the Eugenides Foundation for the 2015 SAFETY4SEA Athens forum!
