Aries Group launches Go Green initiative
On World Environment Day on June 5, 2022 the Aries Management introduced Energy Index, a new feature in its efficiency management software (EFFISM), to analyse the Personal/Division's contribution towards reducing carbon footprint. The management has also announced a cash prize of AED50,000 ($13,612) to the best improving individuals or divisions of the company. Roy said: "Green thinking has always been a part of our company ethos, and our very first step towards achieving this was 'paperless' operations. It was an uphill task, but we became paperless in record time. Time and again, Aries has pushed ahead with a number of measures to reduce carbon footprint, and we will continue to do so." One of the initiatives, Aries Green Solutions, offers sustainable maritime solutions and has completed more than 1,500 retrofit engineering projects, including Ballast Water Treatment Systems (BWTS) and Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems). Aries Green Solutions was also honoured with the "Best Green Maritime Consultant" award at the International Green Shipping and Technology Summit in Athens, Greece, in 2019.
