S.S.G. Shipping Services needs to reduce the carbon footprint. We commit reducing the GHG emissions (scopes 1 & 2) and reach carbon neutral by 2035. We are also committed to reducing the use phase emission intensity of sold products. We work with our suppliers and partners to reduce the indirect GHG emissions from our entire value chain (scope 3). We also continuously identify, analyze and measure the (financial) implications of climate change for our business and our marine clients. As far as possible according International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB).
Our vision: transformation to a carbon neutral value chain by 2035. We reduced our carbon emission in the last two years with 37%, our target for 2024 is 30%. Zero in 2030 in scope 1 and 2.
Summary of our sustainability goals and values:
Protecting marine life should be a high priority for every company operating at sea.
S.S.G. Shipping Services is a preferred supplier for safe and profitable vessel operation. Profitable at SSG also means with benefits for people and planet. We are able to support the different vessel types in the marine markets with spare parts and technical solutions. Because our equipment and spare parts meet the highest standards in quality, eco-friendliness and ISO-certifications, we help our marine customers to limit their emissions to the minimum, making sure they operate according to any given regulation. Furthermore, we strive to contribute to less use of plastic in both products and packaging, as well as smart logistics.
S.S.G. also sees sustainability as the sustainable deployment of employees. This leads to fit employees and ultimately a better result for our maritime customers. We also need employee engagement to reach our sustainable goals. Goals who protect the planet, the people and sealife.
