Ship & Shore Environmental, Inc. (S&SE), a global leader in environmental technology, is expanding its reach and impact across various sectors, reaffirming its commitment to combat environmental challenges with innovation and precision.
Since 2000, the company has offered a full spectrum of environmental services, with a focus on air abatement systems, including a complete array of engineering and manufacturing capabilities and global offices around the U.S., Canada, Europe, India, Thailand, China, and more.
Environment Journal recently engaged Ship & Shore president and CEO Anoosheh Oskuian to share her vision for the business in 2024 and her views on trends in the industry.
“My vision for 2024 is clear. We aim to be at the forefront of cleantech solutions, leading the charge in assisting operating manufacturers to grow sustainably. Manufacturing, the backbone of any economy, is pivotal, and our mission is to ensure it is conducted with utmost environmental consciousness in the era of climate change,” says Oskuian. “By driving down utility costs and advocating for the conservation of resources, we not only support businesses but also make a significant impact in the fight against climate change. Our commitment lies in the harmony of industry and the environment, shaping a future where progress is synonymous with sustainability.”
What are some key challenges they are working to overcome in order to achieve that harmony?
“One key area for improvement lies in the need for more stringent regulations across the entire country. Currently, we observe a disparity, with eastern Canada having more rigorous regulations for air pollution compared to other regions. Establishing uniform regulations nationwide is paramount to unlocking greater opportunities for the clean tech market,” explains Oskuian.
“Harmonizing these standards not only fosters a level playing field but also propels Canada forward in embracing sustainable practices. It’s essential to recognize the significance of manufacturing in our economy, but equally crucial is the understanding that it must be approached consciously, with a commitment to environmental responsibility. Bridging these gaps and promoting conscientious manufacturing practices will undoubtedly propel Canada towards a greener and more sustainable future.”
