CSR PROGRAM

Blue Star Maritime S.A.
12 November 2007



                    CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY PROGRAM
                                   'CULTURE'


The CSR program of Blue Star Ferries, based on our main philosophy that 'the
boats tie up in the harbors and Blue Star Ferries is tied up with the places',
pays great attention to the aspect of culture, especially when it concerns local
communities.


For several years the company responds systematically to various requests for
sponsorships from cultural or other groups of the Greek islands. In this way our
company supports the local tradition and the continuity of civilization of each
island.


During spring-summer 2007 we responded to the needs of the islands' local
communities which were related to culture and entertainment.


Except of the financial aid which was offered to the Children's Theatrical Scene
of Rhodes for the play 'The prince and the golden box', based on the Dodecanese
fairytales, the company has supported associations/groups of the Cyclades and
the Dodecanese islands. This was achieved either by giving free tickets or by
providing up to 50% discount of the transportation cost in order to meet the
needs of local festivals and events.


Among others Blue Star Ferries supported the:

  • 1st International Cultural Festival, Rhodes.
  • 7th Cultural Festival, Naxos.
  • 7th Cultural Festival, Tinos.
  • Religious Music Festival, Patmos.
  • 7th Festival of Aegean cuisine, Andros.
  • 29th International Music Festival, Santorini.
  • Cultural action 'Nisologio', Donoussa
  • Perantinos Museum of Sculptures, Mykonos and Paros.
  • Petros & Maria Kidoniefs Foundation, Culture and Figurative arts, Andros
  • Cultural events, Hermoupolia 2007, Syros
  • Cultural events 'Dream Nights', Mykonos.



For Blue Star Ferries, which offers ferry services in the Aegean Sea on a daily
basis, it is a priority to support the local communities with similar
initiatives.
