Ankron appointed as Incentive Provider

We are pleased to be officially appointed as an Incentive Provider for the Green Award Foundation based in Rotterdam.


Green Award is a certification and incentive program for shipping, certifying sea-going oil and chemical tankers, bulk carriers, LNG and LPG carriers, container carriers, offshore vessels, RoRo, inland navigation barges and river cruise vessels. Its assessment criteria cover environmental, quality and safety aspects and performance of management and the crew to positively influence the conditions of shipping beyond international standards.


With nearly 150 ports and other maritime related organisations providing discounts to the certified companies and ships, the scheme motivates ship owners and managers to invest in the improvements on board and ashore.


As an Incentive Provider, we identify with the core values of Green Award and support the common goal of promoting environmental protection, quality and safety in shipping by complying with the applicable standards at a technically high level.


We would like to thank Jan Fransen (Executive Director), Keita Shinohara (Certification Manager) and Kanu Jain (Research Officer) for the warm welcome and look forward to further cooperation.
