COMMITTED TO CONSERVING THE MARINE ECOSYSTEM
It is EPS’ policy that all our ships at the end of their economic lives will be recycled in a safe, sustainable, responsible and environmentally sound manner. EPS will only engage ship recycling facilities that are fully certified by a reputable, independent and competent IACS Classification Society, accredited by the Hong Kong International Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships (HKC) and compliant with EPS’ Code of Business Conduct. We ensure that all ships maintain an up-to-date Inventory of Hazardous Materials and insist on Material Declarations from our suppliers. Ship recycling is monitored closely and a Statement of Completion that complies with HKC will be obtained at the end of the dismantling. We are fully committed to conserving the marine ecosystem and environment, prioritizing safety and minimizing risks to human health.
