Lubrication Engineers SA is providing a 5% discount on its products and services for Green Award certificate holders to help champion the environmental initiatives of ships, ports and service providers.

The Green Award certifies ship managers and vessels recognised as going beyond safety, quality and environmental performance industry standards. Lubrication Engineers SA, a distributor of US-based Lubrication Engineers International serving South Eastern Europe, is providing the discount on its Viper, ARS (Asset Reliability Solutions) and OSEI (Oil Spill Eater Bioremediation) products and services.

Currently, 100 ports and maritime service providers act as Green Award incentive providers, who award ships the safety and quality standards, which, once confirmed by the Green Award certificate, open up various benefits to recipients such as discounts on the port dues, products and services.

Green Award aims to motivate ship owners and managers to invest in improvements on board and ashore and act as CSR and risk reduction tool for shipping companies and ports.

The scheme is open for sea-going oil and chemical tankers, bulk carriers, LNG and LPG carriers, container carriers and inland navigation barges.
