19 Dec '17 Season’s Greetings 2017
Season’s greetings from the Marorka Team
As the year draws to a close, we would like to take this opportunity to express our warm appreciation for our association during the past months.
May this holiday season be filled with joy and happiness, and we look forward to working with you in the coming year.
We wish you Happy Holidays and a prosperous New Year.
The image in our season’s greeting card for 2017 is from one of many glacial ice-caves in Iceland. Climate change is faster and more severe in the Arctic than the rest of the world. The Arctic is warming at a rate of almost twice the global average. As snow and ice melt, the ability of the Arctic to reflect heat back to space is reduced, accelerating the overall rate of global warming.
Marorka works continuously to minimize harmful emissions, protect the environment and reduce the contribution of the shipping industry to global warming.
This year, instead of sending conventional season’s greetings cards, Marorka will be making a donation to Landsbjörg, the Icelandic Association for Search and Rescue (ICE-SAR). The association’s tough, well-trained rescue teams are volunteers who are ready at any time to man lifeboats and rescue centres all around the country and assist seafarers and travellers in difficulties.
