We have awarded Maran Tankers Management, Inc. (MTM), the oil tanker management company of the Angelicoussis Shipping Group, with ISO 50001 certification as commercial ship operators continue to search for ways to lessen their environmental impact and operating costs.
ISO 50001 is a voluntary international standard that specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and improving an energy-management system. It offers companies a systematic approach to continually improve energy performance, including energy efficiency, use and consumption.
“Certification to ISO 50001 was a milestone for our company, ” MTM Managing Director Stavros Hatzigrigoris said. “Having in place an effective and efficient energy-management system for the operation of our fleet brings real added benefits to the company and it allows us to be proactive in satisfying upcoming regulations, customer requirements and society’s expectations.”
