Nor Shipping will attempt to receive the ISO 20121 in order to support sustainable success for its maritime audience within the developing ocean space.

Director Per Martin Tanggaard, stated:

Developing sustainable business activity within the ocean space is both one of the world’s greatest opportunities and greatest challenges


The initiative is a joint effort in support of UN Sustainable Development Goal 17, regarding the revitalization of global partnerships for sustainable development. If fact, Nor Shipping’s Head of Sustainability and Technology, Silje Bareksten, will work with the ‘Project GREEN’ team to manage the certification process alongside DNV GL. This collaboration includes activities such as assessments and audits of areas regarding transportation, waste disposal, energy use and supplier standards.

In addition, Greener Events will cooperate with the team at Norges Varemesse to optimize the green transition, while DNV GL’s Business Assurance General Manager Siv Emanuelsen will lead DNV GL’s involvement.

The ISO 20121 process comes after Nor Shipping’s decision in August to dedicate its exhibition Hall A to the ‘Blue Economy’. This presented concepts that balance business with sustainable practices.

Nor Shipping 2019 will take place in Oslo and Lillestrøm, Norway, from 4 to 7 June 2019.
