Message from Gearbulk's Chairman
Sustainability is an important priority for us and it is embedded into our long term strategic plan. We believe that sustainability is fast becoming a key differentiator in the supplier selection process and it is our aim to be the supplier of choice in the sectors in which we operate.
It is a continued priority for Gearbulk to take a role in finding solutions to reduce our environmental impact while growing our business. In recent years, we have invested heavily in a renewal program to modernise our fleet. This is supplemented by regularly evaluating how our existing vessels can be further technologically optimised as well as promoting awareness of environmental protection, energy conservation and waste reduction. Our combined efforts resulted in an 18.2% reduction in carbon emissions in 2015 in comparison to our levels in 2010.
To take responsibility for the future through the choices we make today is the vision we have.
Kristian Jebsen, Chairman
