Pledged on International Anti-Corruption Day, and following a commensurate selection process, the below key appointment will marshal, focus and develop Synergy’s many action-based policies and so further arm their ongoing fight against corruption across all aspects in the maritime domain.
As a leading ship management company Synergy Group understands its global business, and in ensuring safe and secure transit it engages with multiple interests, nationalities and authorities. It is committed to delivering on core values of Integrity, Safety, Transparency, Empathy, Empowerment and Respect, and to safe operations without compromising ethics.
Founder Executive-Chairman Captain Rajesh Unni is the Vice-Chair of the Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN) Board and believes that, while shipping is becoming more transparent, more can and should be done to tackle corruption.
The MACN consists of like-minded bodies dedicated to promoting compliance with anti-corruption laws and to the elimination of this scourge, and Synergy acts daily on its belief that Masters and crew must be empowered, and also pre-prepared, in resisting and reporting corrupt notions and demands – in whatever guise they come.
Synergy’s Anti-Corruption Policy makes it clear that any attempted bribery is wholly unacceptable, and (a key part of its Code of Conduct) raises general awareness, issues specific reminders and mandates notifying all such to the MACN, and in order to strengthen what is already Groupwide organisational resilience and to further underpin and sharpen Synergy’s many refined anti-corruption practices, Capt. Abdul Sami has been appointed as MACN officer, first overseeing the reissue of Synergy’s frontline guidance materials that summarise the role of the MACN and include tips on pre-empting unwelcome approaches and how best to support the keynote 3 Cs : Capability Building, Collective Action and Collaboration.
Please join us and the MACN in working together to make this vision a reality.
Capt. Abdul Sami
