Corporate Social Responsibility
At Euronav we define Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as responsible citizenship within the environment and communities in which we operate. We do this by renewing assets to keep a very modern fleet, delivering excellent services that meet the evolving needs of society, and attracting and empowering successive generations of professionals. Moreover, we view CSR as being embedded in our Health, Safety, Quality and Environment (HSQE) standards. All these factors have enabled us to retain the trust and support of our customers, shareholders, employees, and the communities in which we operate since the inception of Euronav.
Euronav has the will to create a space for all at work, to discuss any issues we might otherwise discuss at home or with friends about the environment. It is our goal to develop realistically achievable targets for reducing the environmental footprint of the company as well as of each individual.
During quarterly management review meetings the management reassesses and implements initiatives regarding the company’s environmental performance. Euronav also actively participates in several industry associations (Intertanko, Helmepa, Namepa, TSCF, Oil Majors Conferences and Classification Committees) which promote safe and environmentally sound ship design and operations.
Through its membership with Intertanko Environmental Committee, the company has promoted the concept of benchmarking on environmental performance within the shipping industry.
