We define sustainability and governance through our Environmental, Social Responsibility & Governance (ESG) commitment:

Environmental – our impact on the world

Social Responsibility – our contribution to our communities

Governance – how we conduct ourself

As an organisation, Global Marine Group aim to be an ethical and socially responsible participant in the communities and environments in which it operates.

We view sustainability and governance as an integral part of our organisation and business operations and recognise its value.

The long-term success & growth of GMG relies upon our continued ability to improve the quality of services & products we deliver, whilst fulfilling effective duties of care to operational safety, human health, equality & diversity, environmental protection for future generations & community engagement.

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.

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 Christmas 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.

Volunteering has huge benefits for everyone involved, from developing new skills in an environment away from the office, team building, a sense of pride and of course giving community groups and charitable organisations access to skills and manpower that help to really make a difference.
