2.5 Focusing on People
Culture & Social Development
The maritime industry faces several social challenges of which diversity and employee health and safety are our top priorities.
As a leader in the industry, we have an obligation to address and act as a role model in creating a fair, safe, and inclusive work environment, where everyone is encouraged and supported to achieve their full potential. We do this through extensive training at all levels, implementing our CARE (Collaborative, Ambitious, Reliable, Enduring) values to ensure our employees’ physical and mental health and safety, and by helping underrepresented individuals overcome the challenges they face in our sector.
Our social initiatives are comprised of two main areas:
• those focused on our seafarers
• those focused on our office employees
As the two areas often intersect, we collaborate closely to create a uniform yet tailored approach to mutually benefit all.
