supports fairly balanced, inclusive & sustainable ideas



Logic ( from the Greek λογική logikē) is the formal systematic study of the principles of valid inference and correct reasoning. Logic examines general forms which arguments may take, which forms are valid, and which are fallacies. Logic is studied in argumentation theory and rhetoric. Logic was established as a discipline in philosophy by Aristotle.

So… CommonLAWgic, nowadays, addresses Common Logic from the perspective of law, as systematic study of fairly balanced, inclusive and sustainable solutions from and for the shipping sector, as a result of interaction with society.

Because “Common logic is not so common”. Voltaire (1694-1778)



A team of academics, maritime advisors and experts from various fields, sharing common ideas, voluntarily assist on the interactive creation, evaluation and communication of plans and actions for Sustainable Development, aiming to match our corporate members’ expectations with global future societal and ecologic needs.

The platform counts on the voluntary & pro bono, personal support of well educated experts, business leaders and pioneer professionals at international level, particularly from the shipping, legal, engineering, social or political science and business environment. Our members exchange views and knowledge, over common logic measures in business practice.

Among our main targets is to proactively raise awareness regarding climate change and the impact of carbon emissions, biodiversity and the marine environment, innovation technology, alternative energy & resource efficient energy & waste management (EcoLAWgic). Moreover we focus on issues like transparency and ethical excellence in corporate governance, as well as quality of labor conditions, corporate social responsibility, social entrepreneurship & social inclusion and in general, sustainability, beyond legal compliance (SocioLAWgic).
