2.3 Minimising our Impact
on the Environment & Biodiversity
Environmental Management System (EMS)
Our EMS is designed to reduce environmental impact through continuous improvements.
The EMS has been built in line with our environmental policy and integrated into our safety management system. Our EMS is relevant to all our employees,contractors and activities related to the management of our fleet. It considers internal and external control, and influences over ocean transportation of petro- leum and chemical products globally.
The EMS complies with ISO 14001:2015 and is arranged after the “Plan – Do – Check – Act” wheel. Our environmental impacts are regularly gauged andmonitored following ISO 14001 standards.
Audits are performed once a year by Lloyd’s Register for a duration of 2-3 days. The audit includes the assessment of:
- Senior management interviews
- Site tours
- Management Elements
- Focus or Certificate Renewal Planning Visit
- Technical Management
- Fleet Personnel
- IT support
- Ship Sample Audits
- People, Culture, Strategy & Communication
- Performance & Emissions
Environmental Plan for 2022
Each year we run an assessment of the impacts we pose to the environment and draw up an annual environmental plan.
The plan designs KPIs that we aim to accomplish during that year to improve our environmental footprint. Every quarter, we evaluate our performance against the plan and targets, and determine whether we need to intensify our efforts.
