Athenian Sea Carriers Gains ISO Certification

Thursday, June 06, 2002
Athenian Sea Carriers Ltd has achieved certification to the ISO 14000 Environmental Management System standard. The management system requirements have been audited and certified by ABS Quality Evaluations. "We are dedicated to maintaining and operating our fleet to the highest internationally recognized standards," said Nicolaos Hondos, Chief Executive Officer of Athenian.

"This represents another pillar in the development of a new culture of risk management that guides every aspect of our operations," he said. "The first pillar is the renewal of our fleet. The second is the adoption of risk assessment and management strategies that will guide our decision making process. ISO 14000 certification was the natural extension of the ISM and ISO 9000 management systems that we have already adopted."

In presenting the certificate to Athenian Sea Carriers, ABS President Robert D. Somerville said, "Only a very few shipowners in the world have achieved this standard. It requires total commitment on the part of senior management. It requires that commitment to be communicated to every person throughout the organization, both on the ships and in the office. It requires every staff member to think and act in an environmentally sensitive way. And it demands that they constantly look for areas in which their actions can lead to further improvements in the manner in which the company's operations impact the environment."
