Clean Marine is renowned globally for providing technologies that reduce harmful emissions to air. What is not so well known is that the company is ambitious with regard to gender diversity too. Simply because it believes gender diversity, like scrubbers, is key to providing a sustainable future for the shipping industry internationally.
“There is a significant existing gender gap in the maritime and shipping industries, particularly in leadership positions. While we have not yet closed as many gaps as we want to, we are moving in the right direction in getting even more women to appreciate and embrace working in this fantastic industry,” says Camilla Knappskog, PR & marketing manager at Clean Marine.
To illustrate the latter point, Knappskog highlights the following gender spread in some of Clean Marine’s in-house departments:
- Transport and logistics – 100% women
- Vessel engineering & class team – 100% women
- Process team – 75% women
- Project execution – 47% women
“It is important to underline that gender diversity is not about employing the highest number of women but ensuring that all genders are represented in the organization. Because strength lies in differences, not in similarities. We still have a long way to go, but the numbers above demonstrate that it is possible to succeed in making a male-dominated shipping industry more diverse,” says Camilla Knappskog.
Clean Marine is the world’s leading supplier of exhaust gas cleaning systems (scrubbers) for the global shipping market.
