Terra-Marine Ship Management’s policy with respect to the protection of the environment is that:

  • TMSM recognizes its responsibilities for concerns with both long and short term effects of its operations on the environment and global ecology.
  • The Management supports the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL 73/78) and believes that the first line of defense against pollution is avoidance of accidents.
  • Within economic limitations of operation, TMSM shall endeavor to maintain a leading position in the development of anti-pollution measures, compatible with the best safety and operating policies.
  • All employees have an obligation to ensure that they are fully aware of the impact of their activities on the environment and ensure that every effort is made to prevent pollution from TMSM managed ships.
  • TMSM will devote time and effort in developing this Policy and will provide such training, instruction, information and supervision as is necessary.
  • The Shipboard Contingency Plan, the Shipboard Oil Pollution Emergency Plan and communications instructions contained in Chapter 8 of the Ship Board Management manual are to be followed at all times and are only to be overruled by considerations of safety.
