Hellenic Marine Environment Protection Association


The aim of HELMEPA is to assure that the human element of the Maritime Community will acquire an environmental consciousness when it comes to the blue economy sector.

The environmental consciousness is achieved by a voluntary effort towards informing, updating, educating and motivating all stakeholders in the maritime sector.

The vision of Helmepa is among others to cooperate and assist the government of Greece on issues related to international laws and regulations designed for the protection of the marine environment at sea, to encourage the employees and employers in the maritime community to comply with national and international legislation for the prevention of marine pollution and help establish the spirit of safety.

Helmepa also organizes and conducts training courses to raise environmental awareness among seafarers.
