SEAaT (Shipping Emissions Abatement and Trading), the industry association dedicated to shipping emissions abatement and trading, announced today that it has established a reciprocal Associate Membership agreement with the UK Chamber of Shipping.
John Aitken, Secretary General, SEAaT, said: "SEAaT has been working closely with the UK Chamber of Shipping for a number of years. We have a close alignment based on our respective organisations' views on reducing emissions to air from shipping. SEAaT is delighted this existing close relationship has been recognised by a more formal agreement and we are sure that this will benefit both organisations.”
Mark Brownrigg, Director General, UK Chamber of Shipping, said: “Given that our two organisations have worked so closely together for many years on a raft of key environmental issues, I very much welcome that we have set this relationship onto a more formal footing. The detailed technical knowledge and experience that SEAaT offers, coupled with our wider industry base, will give us a powerful voice in current and future debates.”
