Responsible Procurement

Our focus is to improve supplier selection and assessment process; and to improve supplier engagement in responsible practices, through risk-based audits.

During the year, we increased the sustainability criteria in supplier assessments, screening and requirements, and risk-based audits.  

Ship management enforced new criteria for vendors to demonstrate a viable plan to reduce plastic usage and initiated a joint industry initiative including suppliers to reduce single use plastics on vessels and onshore. 

In 2020, we will continue to engage with suppliers and apply sustainability criteria in screening of new suppliers and auditing of current suppliers.
