An agreement has been signed between classification provider American Bureau of shipping (ABS) and Diana Shipping Services S.A. (DSS), as to implement the ABS Environmental Monitor™ digital sustainability solution across 31 vessels managed under DSS.

“We are delighted to be able to support DSS on their sustainability journey through sophisticated digital technologies. ABS Environmental Monitor™ is a powerful tool designed to support forward thinking shipowners and operators, such as DSS, towards meeting their decarbonization, digitalization and wider sustainability ambitions. Through advanced data analysis, this digital solution provides unprecedented levels of insight into an individual asset’s environmental performance, or that of an entire fleet. ABS is uniquely positioned to deliver a comprehensive digital sustainability solution such as this, thanks to our domain experience and technology resources.”
