Born out of the passion to protect the world’s oceans, rivers and beaches, the inspirational initiative Blue.Seas.Matter. unites all BSM’s offices to eliminate plastic pollution globally.
“As the famous French naval officer Jacques Cousteau once said, ‘People protect what they love’,” said Elena Pantazidou, BSM HR Director.
“For BSM people are at the heart of its business strategy. Together, with the support of its employees, customers and partners, our Organisation has made it its mission to reduce, recycle and eliminate one-use plastic in all locations globally,” she said.
As a global company, BSM believes that for shipping to exist people need to protect the oceans from man-made obstructions such as plastic, pollution, energy consumption and waste. Through Blue.Seas.Matter., both sea and shore staff have come together to organise plastic-cleansing activities and information sharing events, along with the creation and implementation of related policies.
“Being a sustainable business is about striking the balance between shareholder expectations and the needs and concerns of our employees, our customers and the environment. We truly believe that acting as a responsible business – one which is fully committed to respecting human rights – will contribute to a lasting economic success,” said Elena.
Blue.Seas.Matter. is a pledge to pave the way to a better future, conscious of the health and safety of all employees, customers and partners worldwide.
