Big hitters endorse InterManager’s new General Principles

(Posted on 11/02/24)

DNV, Lloyd’s Register, and Steamship Mutual have all given their backing to the aims and objectives of the General Principles. Endorsements from Flag States’ and maritime leaders are anticipated to follow swiftly.

Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen, DNV CEO, Maritime, declared: “As a leading classification society and a trusted partner for the maritime industry, DNV supports the General Principles of Conduct and Action introduced by InterManager. We recognize that these Principles, covering essential domains from Care and Respect for People, Continuous Development and Optimisation to Effective Safety Culture, are well aligned with DNV’s own purpose of safeguarding life, property and the environment. We applaud the efforts of InterManager and its members to demonstrate their adherence to these Principles through self-assessment and audits, and to exchange their insights and best practices with other stakeholders. This kind of collaboration across the industry is vital to drive change and positive impact and tackle the major transformations of our time.”

Nick Brown, Chief Executive of Lloyd’s Register, stated: “As the Global Shipping Industry continues on its transformation through decarbonisation and digitalisation, I am delighted to see InterManager continue to raise the standards of vessel operation and management. The recent years of the global pandemic and increased threats to the security of shipping, not least in the Red Sea, make the safety and welfare of seafarers of paramount importance in order that global supply chains remain resilient.”

Jonathan Andrews, CEO of Steamship Mutual said: “We see a clear shared interest in improving standards and enhancing safety at sea. I look forward to the opportunities to work with the organisation in relation to quality management, sustainability and seafarer wellbeing.”

Welcoming the endorsements, Mark O’Neil, InterManager President, observed: “To succeed in our objective - raising the standard of shipmanagement - we need not only buy-in from our members but also the buy-in and support of the shipping sector at large. This support, from recognised industry leaders, is therefore crucial.”
