Gearbulk Publishes 2015 Sustainability Report

1 September 2016

We are pleased to present our Sustainability Report for 2015.

Sustainability continues to be an important priority for us and it is embedded into our vision and long-term strategic plans. We believe that our enduring commitment to sustainability is becoming a key differentiator in the supplier selection process and it is our aim to be the supplier of choice in our markets.

We strive to create a safe, healthy and productive working environment for all our employees, visitors and contractors.

2015 saw the worst disaster in the company’s history when Bulk Jupiter capsized and sank off Vietnam with 18 of our 19 colleagues on board. It has been an emotionally distressing time and our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of the Bulk Jupiter crew. Following this tragic event Gearbulk has been working on reducing the operational hazards associated with carrying certain types of cargo and will continue to do so.

Given the current global market in which we operate is extremely challenging, business proved to be ever more demanding in 2015. In spite of this, there is no doubt that our commitment to sustainability is unchanged.

It is a continued priority for Gearbulk to take a role in finding solutions to reduce our environmental impact while growing our business.

Highlights in the report include reaching an 18.2% reduction in carbon emissions in 2015 compared to 2010 levels, several other environmental initiatives, safety programmes and giving back to society.

Thanks go to all who have contributed to make Gearbulk a truly Sustainable company.
