DNV GL has confirmed that Columbia Shipmanagement complies with the highest standards in energy and safety management.

Torsten Schramm, President at DNV GL - Maritime, recently presented the ISO certification for the standards ISO 50001:2011 and OHSAS 18001:2007 to Carsten Sommerhage, Director of Columbia Shipmanagement (Deutschland) GmbH, at the shipping company's offices in Hamburg.
"These certifications highlight our efforts to perform a systematic energy management as well as maintaining the highest levels of health and safety through our company. At Columbia, we pursue an integrated strategy to incorporate health and safety into all units of our company," says Carsten Sommerhage.
"Columbia holds the protection of the environment and natural resources as extremely important. The company ensures that all health, safety, environmental and energy aspects of its activities comply with the International Standards of ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 50001 and OHSAS 18001 for shipmanagement services. Furthermore, these standards include the crewing and operation of oil tankers, bulk carries, chemical tankers and multipurpose ships," adds Axel Schulz, Technical Director of Columbia Shipmanagement (Deutschland) GmbH.
ISO 50001 and OHSAS 18001 certifications achieved by CSM Group in 2016 and 2017 for its shipmanagement hubs at Hamburg, Limassol and Singapore are in line with the company's commitment to continual improvement.
ISO 50001:2011 aims at supporting organisations that want to continually reduce their energy use, energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions. The OHSAS 18000 standards provide organisations with the tools for an effective safety management system that can be integrated into other management systems. This helps organisations to improve their occupational health and safety performance as well as their economic objectives.
"CSM has become a leading force in its field by making an unequivocal commitment to quality and efficiency. The company is well known for its efforts in implementing safety standards of life at sea, and safe ship and cargo operations", says Torsten Schramm.
