OneOcean’s integrated platform will support Green Marine participants with environmental compliance.
OneOcean is pleased to announce that it has joined Green Marine, the environmental certification program for the North American marine industry, as a partner. Green Marine brings together stakeholders throughout the maritime industry such as ship owners, port authorities, terminals, seaway corporations and shipyards, encouraging them to reduce their environmental footprint and document their progress through annual self-assessment, confirmed by an accredited external verifier.
OneOcean is well-positioned to join the program as a partner. The software supplied by OneOcean enables their customers to set and adhere to stringent environmental regulations, policies and guidelines, making the company a perfect fit for Green Marine’s partnership membership level. This is reserved for suppliers of services, products, technology and/or equipment that offers environmental advantages or opportunities to help Green Marine participants improve their environmental performance.
“This partnership demonstrates that we are committed to empowering our customers with solutions that enable them to operate with a higher level of environmental diligence,” says Martin Taylor, OneOcean CEO. “The topic of environmental responsibility is becoming ever more prevalent in the industry, and we see more and more regulations coming into effect around the world to protect marine habitats, reduce pollution and control emissions.”
By partnering with Green Marine, OneOcean can provide programme participants with greater visibility and an understanding of how they are currently performing. This, in turn, informs better decision-making on where improvements can be made and helps them achieve and surpass compliance standards with regulations around the world.”
The OneOcean portfolio facilitates a holistic approach for companies, enabling shoreside and onboard crew to work efficiently, in unison, to manage and respond to environmental compliance and fulfilment. This includes software solutions for setting and enforcing environmental policies, including tracking emissions stored in digital logbooks, analysing emissions data to spot trends, and performing route optimisation to maximise fuel efficiency. Backed by a robust database comprising 171 nations’ regulations and over 500 environmental zones, users have the clarity and understanding of current restrictions needed to plan for safe voyages and operations wherever they are in the world.
“We are proud to join an organisation that is committed to environmental responsibility,” concludes Martin Taylor. “As our portfolio evolves, promoting sustainable operations will continue to be a priority for us, and many of our customers have also expressed this same goal through participation in Green Marine. We are delighted to join and assist them in meeting their goals through continuing to develop innovative software solutions.”
OneOcean is the largest single digital solutions company in the maritime industry and the global leader in digital navigation and voyage compliance. The business supports over 15,000 vessels in their regulatory and navigational activities, making life easier for ship owners and managers, both onboard and onshore. Its aim is to simplify e-navigation and compliance with the powerful OneOcean platform built for the future while giving onboard and onshore teams the real-time information they need when they need it.
