SEEMP purposes

The purpose of a SEEMP is to establish a mechanism for a company and/or a ship to improve the energy efficiency of the ship during its operation. Preferably, the ship specific SEEMP is linked to a broader corporate energy management system of the company that owns, operates or controls the ship. The SEEMP is intended to be a management tool to assist a company in managing the on-going environmental performance of its vessels and as such, it is recommended that a company develops procedures for implementing the SEEMP in a manner which limits any on-board administrative burden to the minimum necessary (MariEMS 2017).
