NAMEPA’s Maritime Sustainability Passport Awarded to Tidewater

Carleen Lyden Walker, Co-Founder and Executive Director of the North American Marine Environment Protection Association (NAMEPA) announced that NAMEPA will award their new member, Tidewater, the “Maritime Sustainability Passport” (MSP) Certificate and Seal. The MSP is awarded to companies, organizations, and individuals who met the program requirements, which encompasses each of NAMEPA’s six Transparency Pillars in its Corporate Social Responsibility/Environmental, Social and Governance (CSR/ESG) metrics. Tidewater is dedicated to meeting its ESG goals not only to satisfy its shareholders but all stakeholders successfully pass the MSP evaluation.

Jason Stanley, Tidewater’s Vice President of ESG said, “As a company with a long history of operating responsibly and sustainably, we are pleased to improve our transparency by sharing what we have been doing to protect the environment and positively impact the communities in which we operate in around the world. We are proud to have received this important recognition of our commitment to sustainability from the team at NAMEPA.”

Tidewater, the company with one of the largest offshore support vessel fleets globally, is the fourth company and first offshore service vessel company to be awarded the Maritime Sustainability Passport Certificate and Seal. Tidewater has demonstrated strong progress in developing programs and policies to support its ESG efforts and was awarded the MSP by completing all phases of the program, including supplying supporting documentation for its claims. A team of assessors evaluated their submission to determine whether they meet the criteria, which, upon approval, made them eligible to receive the MSP Certificate and Seal.

Dedicated to protecting the safety of its employees, building strong community relationships, and maintaining awareness of potential environmental impact all while promoting strong business ethics, Tidewater is a positive influence in the Maritime Industry. Tidewater has an exemplary reputation for providing its customers with exceptional service while maintaining safe and environmentally responsible operations, clearly aligning with NAMEPA’s mission to promote industry best practices and to Save Our Seas. NAMEPA congratulates their member on successfully fulfilling the requirements for their CSR/ESG Program and looks forward to continuing to work together to Save Our Seas.

The MSP Seal is used to signify the participant met or exceeded the program’s benchmarks, which offer basic guidelines for the maritime industry along with a Tool Kit to help achieve them and develop best practices using CSR/ESG principles. Some of the program’s benefits include increased efficiency, stakeholder visibility, and positive global impact, and social license.

“The maritime industry is rapidly recognizing the importance of demonstrating its commitment to sustainability” stated NAMEPA Chairman Joe Hughes, CEO and President of the Shipowners Claims Bureau. “NAMEPA identified the need to provide the industry with a standard guideline of expectations relating to a company’s efforts in CSR/ESG. We are pleased to provide this tool for the industry to support its efforts towards sustainability.”

NAMEPA is extremely proud of its contribution to the maritime industry, as its CSR/ESG program is the first known standards program developed specifically for the maritime industry, winning the 2021 Green4Sea Initiative Award for its significant contribution towards greener shipping.
