ABSTRACT
Both the assumptions and results of the work carried out within the framework of the research problem “Environmentally Friendly Polish Shipyard Industry” are presented in our work, which is a part of the project “Environmentally Friendly Ships for the Baltic Area” – BALTECOLOGIC ALSHI P. The aim of our research was to prepare selected companies belonging to the sector of productive, cooperative and supply shipbuilding industry (c.a. 50) to implement quality (if necessary) and environmental management systems. Swedish standards for implementation processes and experience were used. The direct results of one year work were that 13 companies finished reports on quality investigation and two companies were led to QMS certification, 26 companies finished reports on environmental investigation (environmental audit) and two companies were EMS certified. The project realization enabled indication of barriers to implementation of quality and environmental managemental systems, especially in small and medium sized enterprises.
