About us

This website aims to educate children on the marine environment, how oil spills can effect this environment and ways to help minimise any damage in a colourful, fun and interactive way.

ITOPF (The International Tanker Owners Pollution Federation) is a small not-for-profit organisation that responds 24 hours a day, 365 days a year worldwide to incidents involving oil or chemical spills for tankers and other ships providing impartial technical advice.

As a not-for-profit organisation, we have devoted efforts to developing a wide range of technical services to promote effective response in the marine environment to back up our core role of responding to ship-sourced spills.

Our London based team of 33, 16 of whom are available to respond to spills, combined with over 40 years’ experience, is what makes us truly unique.
