Danish maritime manufacturers offer very environmentally and climate friendly solutions, and in many cases the products and solutions do not only meet current standards and legislation; often the products are a step ahead and ready for future standards and demands. It is important to have high standards in environmental and climate issues. However, it is also important that the rules and legislation that apply are the same for everyone, as the maritime industry is international and competes globally. Danish Maritime is striving for a level playing field and high environmental standards.
