Reducing our carbon footprint
We are constantly considering the potential impact of our activities on our environment and preserving it as much as possible from any pollution – whether that be from our work at sea, or our shore-based activities.
In doing so, we always comply with laws, international standards, and agreements in all areas where we operate.
Implementation of our Environment & Sustainability Management Systems and associated guidance and our external ISO 14001 & ISO 14064 certifications
In conjunction with our Ships Energy Efficiency Management Plans (SEEMP) which promotes energy efficiency in our fleet, we are focused on a fleet replacement program to reduce our long-term carbon emissions.
Supporting our community in the Philippines
Our primary charity is the Ninos Pag Asa Centre, based in Olongapo, Philippines. It is an centre for those who are not supported by any other agency, giving medical assistance, educational programmes, skills training and community-based rehabilitation to its residents as well as those in the wider community.
The Group has been supporting the centre since Cable Retriever, the company’s vessel supporting the local maintenance region, arrived in 1998.
Every year Global Marine Group provides funds for meals, electricity, water and hygiene supplies as well as school tuition fees, building development, operations and help to make Christmhttps://globalmarine.group/news/meanda/as a special time of year for all the residents.

Volunteering across the globe
Volunteering is really important to us at Global Marine Group. We give each of our employees across the globe up to three days of paid leave to take part in volunteering opportunities within their local communities ensuring that we do our part in giving back.
“The volunteering programme run by the business is a great initiative. It’s an important way to allow staff to showcase and support the issues that are important to them – like we did with the walk challenge for Motor Neurone Disease Association.
I’ll definitely take part in next year’s big challenge and it’s also planted the seed for doing more community voluntary work in the future as well.” Claire, Finance Business Partner.
