GIEK endorses UN Sustainable Ocean Principles

GIEK is a member of the UN Global Compact Action Platform on Sustainable Ocean Business and was involved in the drafting of the Sustainable Ocean Principles.

We see the Principles as an important reference point and framework for businesses in various sectors, including the financial sector,  to better manage and mitigate risks in activities related to the oceans. As one of the next steps, the platform will be developing a set of practical guidance’s to support companies in advancing ocean sustainability in different sectors. GIEK will be co-chairing the work for one of the sectors; shipyards.
