Maritime Environment Group
Maritime Group Forum
The Maritime Environment Group Forum provides an opportunity for all members to raise and discuss matters of interest and relevance to the protection of the maritime environment and the development of marine renewable energy.
The work and activities of the Maritime Environment Committee will be reported regularly in the Forum. Members may also comment on the Committee’s work, or propose matters for its consideration
Design for the Maritime Environment
Society expectation and regulation require that the maritime industry be fully sensitive to the environment through the reduction of harmful emissions, contamination of the seas and more efficient use of sustainable resources. The thoughtful design and construction of marine vessels and structures can have significant influence in achieving these.
This aide memoire describes those aspects of marine vessels and structures that have an impact on the environment, and how that impact can be mitigated through design. It is intended to provide a broad overview of environmental design considerations and not a detailed reference to design and associated regulation.
