Corporate & Social Responsibility

Our approach to Corporate & Social Responsibility (CSR) encompasses many initiatives and is based on a commitment to maintain high standards in everything we do. We are mindful of the ever increasing risks we face and the need to invest in improving the capabilities of our staff ashore and onboard as well as in the management systems they deploy. Our belief is that we must continue to work hard to embed a culture which believes in doing what is right for our clients and the wider communities we serve, the environment and for our staff. In other words, there is always room for improvement.

Our reputation to date has been built on a strong foundation of honesty and transparency - in our day to day business affairs and when we must deal with incidents involving serious threats to people, property and the environment. We are committed to protecting our reputation and that of our partners in the years to come.
