Bahri values put sustainability at the heart of our operations. New additions to our fleet offer improved fuel efficiencies and we strive to reduce our footprint across our operations.
We invest in the highest safety and environmental standards driven by our values of transparency and consideration.
We continually assess and reduce our environmental impact as part of our ISO 14001:2015 certification.
We strive to improve our quality management at all times as part of our ISO 9001:2015 certification.
Quality, safety, health and the environment matter at Bahri.
Our current ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 certificates reflect Bahri’s high standards in quality and environmental management across all our operations.
The US Coast Guard elevated Bahri to its exclusive QUALSHIP 21 status due to our outstanding Port State Control history in US waters, quality track record, and other stringent safety criteria.
Corporate Social Responsibility
Bahri cares about our impact on society and the world around us.
Our team of over 3,000 employees of different nationalities, and backgrounds is our greatest asset.
Health and Safety
We go beyond mandated standards to deliver top-tier health and safety training that protects and supports our people.
The seafaring life brings unique stresses, so we provide support for mental health issues related to stress, isolation and family separation through a planned program with the International Seafarers’ Welfare and Assistance Network (ISWAN).
Mission to Seafarers
Bahri responsibly supports the honorable work of the Mission to Seafarers as they care for abandoned seafarers and their families.
We develop the nautical leaders of tomorrow through a number of education programs.

Sustainable fleet management
Bahri’s vessels are world-leading because we dedicate ourselves to pioneering efficient, clean and environmentally-friendly engine and hull technologies.
Reducing Our Carbon Footprint
Our modern VLCCs burn 40% less fuel than their predecessors, reducing emissions and positively impacting the company’s carbon footprint.
Special coatings like Seaquantum X200, Intersleek 1100SR and Intersleek 757 ensure maximum hull efficiency and are environmentally friendly.
Internal tank coatings such as Interline 9001 and Marine Line 784 maximize flexibility and allow easy cleaning and maintenance.
Meeting Stringent Standards
Bahri prides itself on meeting the thirteen key standards of the OCIMF2 TMSA 33 as well as the US Coast Guard’s exclusive QUALSHIP 21 status.
New design elements including Becker Mewis Ducts and Boss Coupling System have increased operating efficiency by 3% and 4.5% on many of our ships.
Our crews are encouraged to use the seafarer “Stop Work” authority if they see an unsafe act.
Marine Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems reduce our Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emissions while clean fuel and scrubbing technologies enable us to meet IMO4 2020 SO2 0.5% emission rules.
We are committed to reducing GHG5 2050 emissions by 50% compared with 2008 in line with IMO objectives.
As a safe and responsible company, Bahri ensures its management and affiliates recognize their responsibility to uphold the highest standards of safety across all areas of the business.
We are acutely conscious of our duty to protect our workforce, crew, vessels, client assets, the environment, and our communities.
Protecting People and Assets
Staff receive regular safety training, all vessels operate under international safety standards, and client assets are insured via a recognized international insurance firm.
We promote the best environmental practices across the company by:
- complying with the latest international regulations and standards relating to marine pollution,
- using effective ballast water management practices to prevent seawater contamination,
- using modern fuel-saving technologies in all vessels,
- using advanced coatings on all vessels to further reduce fuel consumption,
- always implementing precautionary measures.
