CSL Group and Oldendorff Carriers have joined The Trident Alliance to support the transparent enforcement of environmental regulations, including the IMO’s 2020 global sulphur cap.
Since 2014, the Trident Alliance has worked to build awareness of the need for robust and effective enforcement of marine sulphur regulations to protect public and environmental health and maintain fair competition. The Trident Alliance is a coalition of shipowners and operators who are willing to collaborate to help ensure robust enforcement of environmental regulations.
Louis Martel, president and CEO of CSL Group, a Canadian-based provider of marine dry bulk cargo handling and delivery services, stated: “Safety and environmental stewardship are fundamental corporate objectives and core values at CSL. So we are thrilled to join the Trident Alliance and add our voice to the growing calls for fair enforcement of environmental compliance.”
Peter Bagh, chief operating officer at Oldendorff Carriers, said: “At Oldendorff Carriers we live and work on the oceans and we are dedicated to preserving and maintaining our environment. We are pleased to join the Trident Alliance to broaden support for effective regulatory enforcement, and we look forward to working with other industry stakeholders to reach our shared objectives.”
“I am very happy to welcome CSL Group and Oldendorff Carriers to the Trident Alliance,” said Roger Strevens, chair of the Trident Alliance and VP of Global Sustainability for Wallenius Wilhelmsen. “Our coalition has swelled to include 49 shipping owners and operators from around the globe, all sharing a common interest in effective enforcement of maritime Sulphur regulations and the will to collaborate to help bring it about. I applaud the strong commitment and visionary leadership from each of our members.”
