The North American Marine Environment Protection Association (NAMEPA) is pleased to announce that corporate member, Genco Shipping & Trading (NYSE: GNK), will be sponsoring an international beach cleanup day on June 30th, 2021. Genco offices in New York, Denmark and Singapore will be joining NAMEPA in efforts to Save Our Seas on a global level. While many people are trying to escape the summer heat and engage in COVID-19 safe outdoor activities, the beaches of the world become accidental dumping grounds to excessive amounts of trash.

Dedicated to environmental stewardship and sustainability, NAMEPA and Genco are well versed in the volume of debris that ends up in our ocean every day and are actively working to mitigate its impacts . NAMEPA recently received the Green4Sea Award for their CSR/ESG (Corporate Social Responsibility/Environment, Social and Governance) Maritime Sustainability Program, the first known standards program for maritime industry. Genco, being one of the largest dry bulk shipping companies in the world, regularly integrates ESG practices in their operational and strategic decision making, recently receiving high marks on the Webber ESG scale. In 2019, Genco and NAMEPA teamed up on a local level and cleaned up a Coney Island , which resulted in over 300 pounds of trash being collected.

Once again, Genco and NAMEPA will team up, but in an effort to enhance their impact have invited the Genco Denmark and Singapore offices to join. All offices will descend upon their local beaches so that everyone across the globe can continue to enjoy our waterways. To showcase their dedication behind efforts to Save Our Seas, senior leadership from all organization offices will be participating.
