NEW YORK, NY, October 24, 2017 – The “7th Annual Capital Link “Operational Excellence in Shipping Forum” will take place on Wednesday November 1, 2017 at the Divani Caravel hotel in Athens, Greece.


The Forum is organized in Cooperation with the Danish Shipowners Association, the German Shipowners Association and the Greek Shipping Cooperation Committee.

With a 7-year track record it is the only Forum that showcases Operational Excellence in the Maritime Sector and explores Best Industry Practices across all major areas such as fleet management, technological innovation, crewing, energy efficiency and the environment, safety & security. The Forum also aims to highlight companies that implement Best Industry Practices as part of their Corporate Culture.

The Forum provides an interactive platform on the topic of Operational Excellence, Best Industry Practices and Sustainability linking shipping companies, charterers, government and non-government industry associations, classification societies, P&I Clubs, flag registries, technology & service providers and the financial and investment community.

We are delighted to see how the industry has embraced this Forum. This year, Senior Executives from 26 leading shipping companies, 3 major classification societies, as well as charterers, financiers and key industry organizations will come together to discuss geopolitical, regulatory and market trends that affect shipping and how the implementation of Best Industry Practices translates into tangible commercial, operational and financial competitive advantages.

The extensive shipping company participation in the Forum is key. Safe, efficient and compliant operations are the backbone of the industry, and the Forum attributes to the Operational Side of the business and to the companies that implement Best Industry Practices the attention they deserve.

“2017 CAPITAL LINK MARITIME CSR LEADERSHIP AWARD” – In the context of the Forum, we will present the “2017 Capital Link Maritime CSR Leadership Award” to Mr. John Platsidakis, Chairman, INTERCARGO; Managing Director – Anangel Maritime Services Inc. in recognition of his commitment in applying and promoting Best Industry Practices.

The Introductory Remarks and the Award presentation will be made by Mr. Panagiotis Laskaridis, President – European Community Shipowners Associations; CEO – Lavinia Corporation/Laskaridis Shipping Co. Ltd.

The “Capital Link Maritime CSR Leadership Award” was initiated 5 years ago aiming to recognize a person or an organization for demonstrating the highest level of commitment to Business Ethics and Best Industry Practices. Previous Honorees were Mr. Jeremy Penn, Dr. Nikos Tsakos, Mr. Efthimios Mitropoulos and Mr. Clay Maitland.
