On Wednesday, November 1st, 2017 Capital Link will hold its “7th Annual Operating Excellence in Shipping & Maritime CSR Forum” at the Divani Caravel Hotel in Athens in cooperation with the Danish Shipowners’ Association, the German Shipowners Association and with the Support of the UK Department for International Trade and many industry associations.
In the context of the Forum, we will present this year the “2017 Capital Link Maritime CSR Award” to Mr. Jack J. Buono, Former CEO and President at SeaRiver Maritime, Inc., an ExxonMobil affiliate in recognition of his commitment in applying and promoting Best Industry Practices. The Award recognizes a person or organization for demonstrating the highest level of commitment to Best Industry Practices.
With a 7-year track record it is the only Forum that showcases Operational Excellence in the Maritime & Offshore Sectors and explores Best Industry Practices across all major areas such as fleet management, technological innovation, crewing, energy efficiency and the environment, safety & security. The Forum provides an interactive platform on the topic of Operational Excellence, Best Industry Practices and Sustainability linking industry, government and non-governmental organizations, industry associations, the financial and investment community, and the public at large.
We are delighted to see how the industry has embraced this Forum. Last year, Senior Executives from 23 leading shipping & offshore company executives, 3 major classification societies, as well as charterers, financiers and key industry organizations came together to discuss how the implementation of Best Industry Practices translates into tangible commercial, operational and financial competitive advantages. The extensive company participation in the Forum is key, as ultimately it is the companies that are implementing these Best Industry Practices and enables us to attribute to the operational side of the business the attention it deserves.
Previous Honorees include: Mr. Jeremy Penn, Chief Executive, The Baltic Exchange in 2016; Dr. Nikolas P. Tsakos, Chairman of INTERTANKO and President & CEO of NYSE listed TSAKOS ENERGY NAVIGATION LTD (TEN) in 2015; Mr. Efthimios E. Mitropoulos, Secretary General Emeritus of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) in 2014; and Mr. Clay Maitland, Founding Chairman – NAMEPA & Managing Partner – International Registries, Inc. in 2013.
