The United Nations Global Compact has launched a set of nine Sustainable Ocean Principles, calling on companies around the world to commit to securing a healthy and productive ocean.
The Sustainable Ocean Principles, produced in consultation with over 300 stakeholders, provide a framework for responsible business practices across sectors and geographies. They build upon and supplement the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
By signing up to the Sustainable Ocean Principles companies recognize the urgency and global importance of a healthy ocean, and will take action to promote the well-being of the ocean for current and future generations.
Nor-Shipping has signed the SOPs and commits to ensure that material ocean-related risks and opportunities are integrated in corporate strategy, risk management and reporting. We will publicly communicate on our commitment to endorse the Global Compact Sustainable Ocean Principles, including through the UN Global Compact annual Communication on Progress- in the spirit of continuous improvement.
