Odfjell handles some of the world’s most hazardous liquids, and we transport them through some of the world’s most vital and fragile environments: the oceans. Our terminals store products close to people’s homes and local communities.
Emissions, soil contamination, or water pollution can all have the potential to adversely impact people and ecosystems. It is imperative, for the sake of people and businesses, that we take care of the environment in which we operate. Climate risk affects all businesses – but it also creates many opportunities.
The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were launched in 2015. To achieve the goals by 2030, we are now in a decade of action. Our Sustainability Strategy builds on the United Nations Global Compact’s ten principles. We will do what we can to contribute to the achievement of the SDGs, and report our actions and initiatives within the international framework and standards.
To guide our work, Odfjell has committed to the ten United Nations’ (UN) Global Compact Principles, the Sustainable Ocean Principles and a set of targets based on a campaign initiated by the Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise (NHO) on UN's 17 Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs).
The UN Global Compact is a strategic policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their strategy and operations by ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption. This initiative sets a framework for the implementation of the principles and thereby facilitates reporting of progress with an annually published ‘Communication on Progress’ on UNGC webpage.
