NORTH P&I CLUB ACTS ON CLIMATE CHANGE

Wednesday, December 15, 2021 

The North P&I Club has published its first Group Impact Report, intended to highlight the Club’s commitment to sustainability and “ambitious but achievable” targets for the years ahead.

The document details the Club’s progress in three key areas – planet, people and performance – and sets out its sustainability targets for 2030.

 Mark Church, Head of Sustainability, North P&I Club, said: “Our focus in this, our inaugural Impact Report, is on the tangible and important steps that we are currently taking at North and our strategy going forward. Sustainability for North is about trying to make real-world differences in the ways that we operate internally and facilitating sustainability for our Members and Clients.”

In the Impact Report, North names seven of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as underpinning its sustainability efforts, but acknowledges goal 13, climate action, as the “biggest sustainability challenge that we face”.

The Report goes on to review the steps North is taking to mitigate its own climate impacts and those of its Members and Clients, such as handling of pollution-related claims and establishing a cross-departmental ‘Navigating Decarbonisation’ working group.

CEO Paul Jennings said: “This Impact Report sets out the extensive work being undertaken on sustainability at North and sets out seven ambitious but achievable top-level targets for 2030. These focus on carbon emissions, waste, our supply chain, diversity and inclusion, corporate social responsibility, employee engagement and investments. North is in a strong position to enable change in the maritime sector – through its own actions and by using our expertise to help ensure that our Members and Clients are equipped to continue trading with confidence in the decades to come.”
