The maritime interiors community is small but intensely passionate about the environment. While before we acted independently, now we can work together.
It’s easy to talk and wait for others take action but once in a while the subject matter, people or something else entirely might inspire you to step forward and commit to helping advance an important agenda.
In mid-2022 a group of like-minded designers, specifiers and other maritime experts came together to try and change the way maritime interiors are designed, built, maintained and managed through best practices and considerate end-of-life planning. Over the following three months the Sustainable Maritime Interiors Ambassadors debated the issues and summarised the key principles in a declaration that the entire maritime interiors community can support – a line in the sand that starts by trying to follow a series of commitments.
This is only the start of our journey for there is much to accomplish in the future. It’s your turn to step forward – Support the declaration and encourage your colleagues, customers and connections to do the same. Be an advocate for sustainability, pursue the actions outlined in the declaration’s commitments and support new initiatives that will contribute to a better future for all.
Our journey does not end with this declaration, there is much more that we can accomplish together.
