Health & Environmental Policy

Recognising the integral role its seafarers play in the global maritime chain, Yialos enforces a “zero tolerance policy” towards environmental pollution. In addition to carrying out its operations in a sustainable manner and one that promotes the well-being of all personnel (ashore and at sea). Yialos requires all embarking crew to sign the company’s “zero tolerance policy” declaration. This exemplifies Yialos’ commitment to protecting the environment, and to enforcing the highest shipping industry standards and practices.



No Exploitation of Crew Policy

Another illustration of Yialos’ desire is to be at the forefront of the shipping industry's legislative and regulatory frameworks is the implementation of its “non-exploitation” policy. As in the case of the its' “zero tolerance” policy, all joining crew are required to sign a declaration, stating that Yialos will compensate any seafarer that has been subjected to any act(s) of exploitation, with a reward of up to USD 5,000 and guaranteed employment. This practice typifies Yialos' philosophy of the fair and just treatment of its personnel both ashore and at sea, and adheres to the philosophy that seafarers are its strongest assets. To the best of our knowledge, Yialos is the only manning organisation to implement such a practice, and to this day it has not been implemented by our competitors.
