Environment Protection

Environment Protection

The principal goal of a full-blown environmental protection policy is to ensure the so-called zero-spill practice at all levels of business, which means operating only safe vessels and minimizing environmental pollution and safety risks.

To implement this policy all on-board crews must:

  • consistently follow standard procedures;
  • duly identify and prevent safety risks;
  • participate in regular training to consolidate depollution skills.

Where safety and environmental protection are concerned human factor is what matters most. Therefore JSC Latvian Shipping Company does its best to ensure that every person the company employs has undertaken appropriate training that prepares motivated and highly qualified staff.

JSC Latvian Shipping Company complies with all applicable national and international environmental protection laws and guidelines. The system is maintained in line with ISM Code requirements. All vessels have received the ISM (International Safety Management) Certificates.
