Sustainability

Regulations

There is a worldwide increased focus on sustainable fishing and combatting illegal fishing. Resulting in more strict rules and regulations for loading fish directly from fishing vessels to reefer ships. GreenSea will always comply with environmental regulations and work according to the most recent and strict EU regulations with regards to fishing, hygiene and sanitary issues. To ensure sustainable fishing, GreenSea complies fully with Regional Fishery Management Organizations or RFMO’s policy. Moreover, our ships are flagged with countries which are contracting or cooperating parties to RFMO’s. This way, strict agreements on sustainable fishing are made and kept.

Friend of the Sea

GreenSea has been the first specialized reefer company to obtain the certification Friend of the Sea - the newly launched international sustainable shipping standard.

Friend of the Sea is an international certification program for products from sustainable fisheries and aquaculture. Over 500 companies in more than 50 countries have relied on Friend of the Sea to assess the sustainability of their seafood origins. Audits, based on best and most updated available scientific data, are run by accredited independent certification bodies.

 


360 Quality Label

GreenSea is part of the 360 Quality association – a quality label for the worldwide specialized reefer sector assessing ships, companies, terminals and other service providers according to the 360Q Code.

The association’s goal is to ship products from port to port, without the quality of the product being compromised. To do this, it uses big refrigerated ships, also called reefer ships.

360 Quality is a true quality label. Every ship and every terminal with a 360 Quality Label is checked according to 360 Quality’s checklists. We are convinced that these checkpoints are of utmost importance to maintain qualitative vessels and terminals.

360 Quality supply chain

360 Quality has a specific approach on quality: fast, dedicated and direct.

  • FAST: keeping short transit and terminal times in order to get perishables in the stores faster.
  • DEDICATED: building and sharing know-how about the perishables, the ships, the ports, the legislation and much more.
  • DIRECT: keeping direct contact with the cargo and checking product quality regularly to assure quality.

As GreenSea is associated with 360 Quality, we are committed to meet the 360 Quality standards. In this way, GreenSea is fast by transmitting the cargo by use of own cranes. We are dedicated by showing transparency and our human touch. Direct by maintaining personal contact between the personal service and the client.
