Livanos established HELMEPA (Hellenic Marine Environmental Protection Association) and built its first premises at the Ceres office in Piraeus, thus creating the first permanent environmental exhibition, which is still active within the shipping, and wider community today.

In 1987, the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) recognised, George P. Livanos with the Global 500 Award.
