Aegean Shipping announces the publication of its second ESG Report
This is our second Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) report, which communicates our efforts in integrating sustainability into our broader business strategy, and long-term vision. Through this report, we present the actions and initiatives we undertake to support our employees, business partners, and the community.
This ESG Report refers to the period 01.01.2020 – 31.12.2020 and is prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiatives (GRI) Standards Core option and the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) for Marine transportation.
The accuracy of the information presented in the ESG 2020 report has undergone an external Verification of Sustainability Reports. On September 2021 Aegean Shipping Management successfully received its ESG Verification Certificate. The Verification assessment was conducted according to Bureau Veritas procedures.
Company’s Chairman Mr. George Melisanidis pointed up: “The year 2020 was a turbulent year for all industries across the world. It made us rethink and find new ways of implementing our “business as usual”. We became agile and adaptable, focusing on building effective response strategies and plans. Having as a top priority to keep our people safe, we responded proactively to all challenges taking the necessary measures.”
Guided by an innovative and forward-looking approach to shipping, Aegean has established a successful track record in the maritime business.
We create value to our stakeholders through a holistic approach. This holistic approach has as a top priority the protection of the environment and the wellbeing of our people.
