What is HELMEPA?


What is the principal aim of this initiative?


What gave birth to this initiative?

It was the acute apprehensions of the late Greek ship owner, George P. Livanos regarding the serious threat human activities pose to the world’s oceans. With the firm belief that the Greek maritime community could indeed make a positive start towards (realizing) sustainable shipping, the President of the Union of Greek Shipowners together with the Secretary General of the Panhellenic Seamen’s Federation, signed the Declaration of Voluntary Commitment “To Save the Seas” on 4 June 1982 as well as an Action Plan upon which the Association was founded and has been operating ever since. And in order for this initiative of Greek shipping to be (to ensure their message was) heard around the world, five internationally-recognized environmental organizations co-signed the Declaration.
