Green Award identifies and certifies ships that are extra clean, safe, demonstrate excellent performance and have gone beyond the legal standards. With over 900 ships certified, the Green Award is recognised throughout the industry as a quality mark.

In joining over 120 ports and other maritime service providers in support of the initiative, The Nautical Institute now offers all Green Award members a 10% discount of all Nautical Institute publications and additional discounts on order of 10 or more books.

The Nautical Institute is an international representative body for maritime professionals involved in the control of sea-going ships. It provides services to enhance the professional standing and knowledge of members who are drawn from all sectors of the maritime.

David Patraiko FNI, Director of Projects for The Nautical Institute and Chair of the Green Award Board of Experts, said:

Professional development goes hand-in-hand with operational excellence, so we are pleased to offer these incentives to those dedicated to safety and environmental protection.
