Recent pioneering steps made by Mr. Tsakiris include a partnership with World Maritime University to launch a postgraduate diploma in marine insurance. A firm believer in sustainability, he has also led AHHIC to become the first marine insurer to sign up to the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative Principles for Sustainable Insurance.
