In order to drive forward our sustainability ambitions, we created a Sustainability Steering Group (SSG) in late 2011.
Led by the Senior Manager, Sustainability & Technical, the SSG reports to the Gearbulk Leadership Team and is charged with managing delivery of our sustainability objectives. It is also responsible for ensuring that sustainability is firmly embedded in all aspects of our Business Management System.
SSG uses a matrix to chart how we can apply to Gearbulk the five areas of sustainable capital from which we derive the goods and services we need to improve our lives: natural, human, social, manufactured and financial.
Key to our ongoing success in these efforts is to engage our employees and external stakeholders, particularly our customers, to identify ways to collaborate on improving our contribution to a more sustainable world.
