Dr Anne-Marie Warris, MIEMA, has been named 2013 personality of the year by WISTA-UK - part of the Women's International Shipping and Trading Association

Warris is an internationally respected expert in the fields of sustainable shipping, climate change and environment management, with more than 25 years of experience.

In that time, she has contributed to a series of influential committees and consultations, including those conducted by:

  • the International Maritime Organisation;
  • the Sustainable Shipping Initiative;
  • the Institute of Marine Engineering;
  • the European Commission;
  • the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change; and
  • the Royal Academy of Engineering.

Warris also has a long association with the International Organisation for Standardisation, where she is chair of both the subcommittee responsible for environment management systems and the joint task coordination group for management systems.

Presenting Warris with her award, Maria Dixon, president of WISTA-UK, said: “Anne-Marie has a unique record of achievement in her field. She has long demonstrated a practical and common sense understanding of the maritime industry.

"She is a great communicator of sometimes complex issues, and has a down-to-earth quality that will make her an excellent ambassador for WISTA-UK and for the aims of WISTA internationally.”

IEMA chief executive Tim Balcon congratulated Warris: “It’s so good to know that our members are making such a positive and major contribution to our profession, and that due recognition of her achievements has been forthcoming.”

Warris has been an IEMA member since 1993. As well as her Full membership, she is a principal environmental auditor and lead environment management systems auditor. Recently retired from a senior role at Lloyd’s Register, she is about to launch a new business in the area of maritime, climate, environmental and sustainability.
