There are several benefits for shipyards reporting on ESG:

  • Customer and Contract Requirements: Many shipping companies and public bodies require the ships they purchase to meet certain ESG standards. To attract customers and secure contracts, shipyards must be able to demonstrate compliance with these standards.
  • Risk Management: ESG reporting helps shipyards identify and address risks related to environmental impact, social issues, and corporate governance. This may include risks related to environmental damage, labour rights, and reputation.
  • Efficiency and Sustainability: By reporting on ESG, shipyards can improve the efficiency and sustainability of their operations. This may involve measures to reduce energy consumption, waste, and emissions, as well as promoting a safe and inclusive working environment.
  • Investor Interest: Investors are increasingly concerned with ESG factors when evaluating investments in shipyards and other maritime companies. Reporting on ESG can help attract investors and strengthen the company's financial performance in the long term.
  • Corporate Social Responsibility: As key players in the maritime industry, shipyards have a corporate social responsibility to minimise their impact on the environment and local communities. ESG reporting helps demonstrate that they take this responsibility seriously and are working to fulfil their obligations to stakeholders.

The partnership between Green Yard Group and Metizoft underscores the growing importance of ESG reporting in today's maritime business. By embracing sustainability and transparency, companies can not only lessen risks and improve their reputation but also contribute to a more resilient and equitable world for the future.
