The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) is requesting your kind participation in an environmental survey they are currently conducting. They summarize their objectives with the following…

“The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers is a 117 year old professional Society based in the northeast US with 9,000 plus members. We are an international Society with active sections who host a number of events designed to stimulate professional development, technical content, and the interest of our members.

We publish academic and contemporary business works, manage a portfolio of scholarships and research, and are growing a modern web presence to deliver services to members and information to the public.

One of our Technical and Research Panels, EC-7, is studying environmental management in the martime industry. We have developed a survey for the purpose of determining environmental awareness on various issues both within and outside the maritime community.

The aim of the survey is manifold, but hopefully we will be able to answer questions such as:

1. What are environmental perceptions within and outside the maritime community?
2. How much is the public aware of the maritime industry’s environmental practices?
3. Is there sufficient training for operating environmental equipment?
4. Are things getting better or worse?

The survey can be found here.

We would appreciate it if you could take the survey, but even more importantly also send the survey on to people you know within and outside the marine industry and ask them to complete the survey as well. The greater the number and variety of responders we collect, the greater the effectiveness of this effort.

We hope to get responses from people such as high schoolers, teachers, candlestick makers and policy makers from all over the world.

The survey is fully anonymous and cannot match responses with actual people. Thank you in advance and we look forward to providing you with the results of the survey.”
