environmental compliance practices of shipping companies and further explored
the impact upon seafarers’ health and well-being when fulfilling the

promoting a green economy, global value chains and trade corridor performance.

recent assignments have involved supporting some of the region’s maritime
projects of major international significance, including the EU Critical
