Grieg Shipping Group Awarded by WWF Phillipines

November 17, 2011

Grieg Shipping Group Receives the WWF Environmental Leadership Award as part of the celebration of WWF Philippines 15th year anniversary and the WWF Globals’ 50 years.

This year, World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Philippines celebrates its 15th year anniversary and the WWF global network’s 50 years of taking care of our living planet. To mark these milestones, WWF-Philippines held a Black and White Benefit Gala on 10 November 2011 at the Manila Polo Club in Makati City. During this event, WWF-Philippines recognized its corporate partners and the support given to ensure the continuity of its environmental sustainability, conservation, and climate change adaptation projects.

Grieg Shipping Group received the WWF Environmental Leadership Award for its support in rebuilding MY Navorca; WWF-Philippines’ only research vessel.

MY Navorca provides research and transport services to WWF-Philippines’ conservation work in the Sulu Sea, specifically in the Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park and the island municipality of Cagayancillo, which is about 180 nautical miles from the city of Puerto Princesa in Palawan. MY Navorca is a crucial vehicle in the research and conservation work in the Tubbataha Reef; the single most productive reef system in the Philippines.

Jannicke Steen and Hanne Borgersen represented the company during the event.
