In recognition of the environmental issues affecting the planet, SIGTTO has published its Environmental Policy Statement, pledging support for the aims of the IMO’s Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Strategy.
IGTTO pledged to engage with both the IMO and other industry bodies to address any technical or safety risks emerging from the GHG strategy measures.
We will support members’ efforts to meet the GHG strategy, and to instigate and share best practice to achieve the goals set
The Board has also agreed to increase its focus on environmental policy and has determined that the former Environmental Sub-committee will become the Environmental Committee. It will operate in parallel with the General Purposes Committee.
The increased focus on environmental issues, at both the IMO and within our industry, adds another dimension to SIGTTO’s work. This was recognised by the change in our Bye-Laws last year
SIGTTO will draw upon its expertise in gas shipping and terminal operations to assist the development and adoption of measures to protect the environment, specifically:
- SIGTTO will support the IMO to develop and adopt measures to successfully achieve the goals set in the IMO’s GHG Strategy.
- SIGTTO will engage with IMO and other industry bodies to address any emerging technical and safety risks arising from these measures. SIGTTO will develop and deploy solutions to meet these challenges.
- SIGTTO will instigate and share best practice to meet the IMO’s GHG Strategy, and support members’ individual efforts to fulfil these objectives.
