“Creatures with conscience, like humans, can never escape their responsibility”
E.P. Papanoutsos, in “Science and Responsibility”
Today we celebrate the World Maritime Day 2020.
The theme selected by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) for this year is “Sustainable shipping for a sustainable planet”.
In 2015, 193 countries adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The Agenda for Sustainable Development calls for action by all countries to eradicate poverty and achieve sustainable development by 2030 worldwide.
The Sustainable Development Goals are seen as an opportunity to transform the world for the better and leave no one behind.
The 2020 World Maritime Day theme was selected by the IMO as it provides an excellent opportunity to raise awareness of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to showcase the work that the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and its Member States are undertaking to achieve the targets. The theme also provides opportunities for leaders from various sectors, including shipping, to both reflect on the work done and the urgent steps they further plan towards a sustainable future.
Syndeseas was created based on the co-founders realization that our main responsibility as humans and as professionals, is to form part of the global efforts for facilitating the maritime industry’s contribution towards tackling man-made climate change and to act now, to preserve our planet for us and the following generations.
Our means to fulfill this responsibility, is the Syndeseas Integrated Solution, our daily work, activities and commitment towards engineering innovative solutions, serving the maritime industry and the global shared vision for greener seas.
