As one of the world’s leading seaborne transporters of petrochemical gases and natural gas liquids, Evergas recognizes its social and environmental responsibility. We are committed to sustainable thinking as we believe this will unlock growth to the benefit of both Evergas and society. Our efforts in sustainable development are particularly focused on, but not limited to, the following areas: Innovative Technology & The Environment, Health Safety & Security (HSS) & Development of Human Resources, Governance Standards. Being an ethical and responsible business partner is of utmost importance to us. We believe in acting for the future by caring for today and tomorrow. For that reason we created the following objectives.
It is Evergas policy to recycle ships in a responsible manner, so as not to pose any unnecessary risk to human health and safety or to the environment. At the end of its operational life, ships shall only be sent to yards for recycling, which have been certified by any of the IACS member to meet the requirements of the IMO’s Hong Kong International Convention for safe and environmentally sound recycling of ships. The chosen yard shall be audited by Evergas to verify HSSEQ compliance standards before and during recycling process.
