The presentation of the Monaco Eco Club Awards 2017, organised by the Monaco Economic Board (MEB) in partnership with the Nice-Matin Group, took place on Tuesday evening, November 28, in the presence of Jean Castellini, Minister of Finance and the Economy, and Marie-Pierre Gramaglia, Minister of Public Works, the Environment and Urban Development.

The annual six awards – Manager of the Year, International, Sustainable Development, Made in Monaco, Innovation and Special Jury Prize – for outstanding entrepreneurs in the Principality, each contributing to promoting Monegasque excellence in their sector of activity, were presented in front of the 350 MEB members and guests at the Grimaldi Forum.

Marie-Pierre Gramaglia presented the “Sustainable Development” award to SEMCO, a company specialising in eco-friendly packaging and packaging. Jean Castellini personally presented the “Made In Monaco” trophy to Coty-Lancaster, world leader in the sun cream sector and the “Special Jury Prize” to Espen Oeino International, a naval architecture and design company.

Mr Oeino, who has a staff of 17 in Monaco, shared his vision of a 181.6-metre Research Expedition Vessel (REV), which will be used by researchers and marine experts to study and understand the ocean’s environmental changes and to address these critical issues. The ship is fitted with a number of eco-friendly and sustainable energy solutions, such as an efficient wave-cutting bulb to help reduce fuel consumption from the medium-speed engines and, further below the waterline, an energy recovery rudder system and battery package with an exhaust cleaning system.

The International Award went to V.Ships, accepted by Chief Operating Officer and Director Elliot Gow. V.Ships was founded in 1984 by Roberto Giorgi and is the largest ship management company in the world with a team going from 34 ships in 1984 to around 1000 ships today. The company has around 70 offices around the world and some 2,800 shore personnel.
