Energy Efficiency Management Policy

Medcare Shipping SA believes that although shipping is by far the most fuel-efficient means of transport, nevertheless additional action is necessary to improve the energy efficiency of ships related operations further. Increased energy efficiency eventually results in increased environmental protection by reducing air emissions.

To enhance the energy efficiency of the shipboard operations, Medcare Shipping SA commits to:

  • Establish and maintain a Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP).
  • Increase energy efficiency and minimize energy waste. A set of time-specific, measurable – whenever practicable – and achievable targets are established and maintained, which relate to a combination of design optimization, in-service performance monitoring, and best-practice operational management processes.
  • Promote energy efficiency awareness through training to all employees.
  • Monitor and comply with all applicable legal requirements related to ship energy efficiency management.

In the section ‘compliance with international standards and rules’, with regards to the reference made to ISO standards, we could also add the following standards:

  • ISO 45001 (Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) Management)
  • ISO 27001 (Information Security Management)
