Continuing Education A Must for Shipping Companies Striving to Reduce Carbon Footprint

Transmarine Navigation Corporation—a leading U.S. tramp ship agency with offices in a dozen port cities along the Gulf Coast, West Coast, and Hawaii—recently sponsored and attended the 9th Annual Dry Bulk & Commodities Conference, hosted in November 2023 by the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers at the Marriott Pinnacle Downtown hotel in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The conference agenda touched on a variety of marine shipping topics, with a heavy emphasis on environmental issues such as reducing the industry’s worldwide carbon footprint and harnessing the power of wind energy.

“We’re happy to have supported such an important conference,” said Transmarine Managing Director Leslie Clements, who attended along with Transmarine Director of Operations Ian Mantha. “The more we can learn about the environmental challenges currently facing the maritime industry, the better we can work to adopt more sustainable transportation practices.”
