Our mission

Cleaner Seas is an online publication that covers the whole range of marine environmental issues and legislation, ranging from matters such as oil pollution prevention to control of funnel emissions and from the dumping of rubbish to use of antifoulings. It is produced with the active assistance and support of the major maritime organisations. Cleaner Seas has three main objectives: to keep shipping decision makers up to date with environmental issues, to inform a wider readership of what action is already being taken by shipping to prevent environmental damage and to project a balanced view of the industry’s environmental record, which is far better than the tabloid press would have us believe.
