As the proud flag carrier and national shipping line of the Sultanate of Oman, OSC has embraced sustainability as the bedrock of its corporate philosophy. Integral to the concept of sustainability is a steadfast commitment to the principles of environmental and social responsibility, compliance with local and international maritime regulations, and upholding safe working conditions and fair play. In essence, it enshrines a commitment to providing safe, secure and efficient shipping and transportation solutions to its customers, while furthering the strategic interests of stakeholders and the nation.
OSC supports international initiatives on clean and sustainable shipping in a number of ways, notably via its advocacy of cost-effective fuel technologies for shipping, and use of energy efficient engines and hulls for new builds. The company also backs legislation on greenhouse emission reduction, unauthorized discharge of ballast, safe reception and disposal of ship waste and sludge, and other IMO mandated measures.
