Thome humbled by green award

(Posted on 06/03/20)

The Thome Group is delighted to announce that it has won the Green4Sea Dry Bulk Operator Award, which was announced during a ceremony at the Yacht Club of Greece on 3rd March 2020.

The win recognised that the Thome Group was a “ship operator of bulk carriers that demonstrated environmental excellence and performance.”

The Thome Group was up against a shortlist of four other prestigious companies operating in this sector and the final decision was based on an audience vote where the industry was invited to choose their preferred dry bulk operator who had demonstrated outstanding environmental consideration.

Commenting on the award win Mr Olav Nortun, Thome Group’s CEO, said: “I am delighted that the Thome Group has won this award as it highlights how much emphasis we have put on ensuring that we make as minimal an impact on the environment as possible. I would especially like to thank our Environmental Compliance Department in supporting our crews and office staff with training and information to help ensure we comply with all necessary environmental regulations. My thanks also go to everyone who voted for us, as having our commitment recognised by our industry peers is very humbling.”

Mr Sean Hutchings, Thome Group’s Chief Operating Officer -Bulk Division, added: “I would like to add my congratulations and thanks to our team, especially our crew onboard, for working so hard in following proper procedures and processes which help maintain full compliance with environmental regulations. Respecting nature is so important to the future of our planet and Thome’s staff go the extra mile in helping with various CSR activities including beach cleaning, tree planting and raising funds for victims of natural disasters.”
