Sustainability report – Hållbarhetsredovisning
From 2017 it is mandatory for companies of a certain size and/or turnover over a certain amount to provide a sustainability report. Erik Thun AB match this criteria, with this report published on our website.
The purpose of a sustainability report is to put background to the figures in the annual report and show how the company work with sustainability in different areas. Shipping is a controlled industry and restricted in many ways by global policies and for us sustainability work is nothing new, it has constantly been an important part in how we work and do business.
We have focused on our environmental, social, and business ethical responsibilities, describing how we work proactively to analyze risk and avoid incidents and are technical innovators when it comes to clever solutions that minimize the environmental footprint. We also describe how we work to care for the well-being of our employees both ashore and onboard as being an attractive, safe and responsible workplace is the key to success.
We have chosen to connect our sustainability work with the 17 global goals for sustainable development that UN has set for the global community, to make our vision and target clearer and to emphasize that sustainability is a long-term commitment for future generations.
