Increasing regulatory focus on the reporting of non-financial and sustainability-linked information is starting to affect tanker companies both directly and indirectly through requirements on financial institutions and charterers. The European Union is leading a number of sustainability and corporate governance initiatives which will eventually impact INTERTANKO’s Members.
These include but are not limited to the Taxonomy Regulation and Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive. Meanwhile, industry-led, voluntary initiatives such as the Sea Cargo Charter and the Poseidon Principles are vehicles with which charterers and banks can gather and publish sustainability information linked to the tankers being chartered-in or financed, respectively.
INTERTANKO will actively engage with regulatory authorities and third-party stakeholders on these developments with a view to sharing information with the membership and assessing the technical, practical and commercial implications of any such initiatives that have a direct impact on INTERTANKO’s Members.
