Cyprus Shipping Chamber “goes Green”

The Cyprus Shipping Chamber was awarded the "Green Offices" eco-certification, by adopting environmentally sustainable working methods and solutions at the workplace and thus reducing the negative impact in the environment, remaining in this way committed to its corporate environmental responsibility.

Environmental sustainability at the workplace as well as the protection of the marine environment are an integral part of the Shipping Chamber’s actions, and the Chamber therefore, is always ready to participate in commendable initiatives such as the “Green Offices” programme.

The “Green Offices” certification ceremony took place at the Cyprus Shipping Chamber’s office on Monday, 15 January, 2018. The certification was given from Dr. Michalis Ieridis, Secretary General of the Cyprus Marine Environment Protection Association (CYMEPA), to the Director General of the Cyprus Shipping Chamber, Mr. Thomas Kazakos.

The “Green Offices” is a programme of the non-profit organisation CYMEPA, which promotes environmental sustainability at the workplace in order to reduce the ecological footprint of the office. The programme is run under the auspices of the Commissioner of the Environment of the Republic of Cyprus. The “Green Offices” certification can be awarded by meeting the criteria of adopting environmentally sustainable methods and practices, reducing energy consumption, recycling and promoting environmental education at the workplace.
