Brim is a tourism company that aims to provide sustainable nature experiences at sea with the hybrid-electric catamarans. We will combine thoughtful modern design with innovative technology and ambitious environmental standards to create a unique product for exploring Northern Norway. Our vision is to attract a global audience and visitors and to leave them with stronger environmental engagement.
Brim Environmental Protection Policy
By creating experiences that bring us closer to the ocean, we hope to leave our guests with a stronger environmental understanding and engagement than when they arrived.
Our environmental protection policy is built into the safety management system to ensure that the policy is enforced in all areas of the business. Our overarching goal is to minimise the impact our operation has on the external environment.
Brim strictly follows national and international laws, regulations and guidelines as well as Company standards in regards to pollution prevention and animal welfare. When encountering marine mammals and other wildlife we follow the Whale Watching guidelines of Visit Tromsø.
We actively work towards being as eco-friendly in all Company and ship operations as possible. As far as possible our tours will be run using our electric engines, and when applicable the electric engine will support the diesel to reduce emissions. All shipboard personnel shall be familiar with the rules and requirements regarding overboard discharge of waste, oil spill and pollution prevention. Detailed information and training material is available for all shipboard personnel in the ISM-system.
The volume of waste generated on board shall, as far as possible, be reduced to a minimum. When ordering goods we shall consult the supplier and encourage them to use minimum packaging and/or packaging in recyclable materials. The Master shall ensure that all waste generated on board, except hazardous substances, which must be stored separately, must be sorted and stored in dedicated waste containers. Where sorted waste facilities are not available on shore, we shall encourage the harbour to improve their waste handling capabilities. Under no circumstances should waste be thrown overboard. Necessary moeasures shall be taken to calculate the potential risk to health and safety, as well as the risk of fire associated with stored waste on board. Flammable waste shall be stored in a safe environment and removed as soon as possible. The surroundings of such material shall be kept clean at all times. Waste containers onboard shall be placed so that they do not obstruct evacuation routes.
