InsightsJune 10, 2022

Norwegian Hull Club is proud to have been accepted as a member of the Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN).

Established by a small group of committed maritime companies in 2011, MACN has since grown into a global business network comprising more than 165 companies. Together, they work towards a maritime industry free of corruption that enables fair trade to benefit society.

Norwegian Hull Club welcomes the increased focus on transparency and sustainability awareness that has been noticeable in the maritime industry - and in general - in recent years. The Club believes that all industry players must engage and take responsibility to secure increased insight and corresponding action.

CEO Hans Christian Seim said: “By becoming a member of MACN, Norwegian Hull Club has taken another step in proving its commitment to encouraging transparency and actively working against corruption. Many of The Club’s clients are already members of MACN and, by joining ourselves, we further strengthen our support to their dedicated efforts.

“The network’s focus on knowledge sharing, cooperation and raising integrity standards for maritime trade rings well with Norwegian Hull Club’s values and business concept. We look forward to gaining a better understanding of our clients’ challenges related to trading in areas with a higher level of corruption issues.”
