During 2018 IMCA formed an Environmental Sustainability Committee, reporting to the HSSE Core Committee. This committee aims to influence the industry in environmental stewardship matters that are in the collective best interest of the marine contracting industry. It’s objectives include assisting members in the following areas:
- Working with clients and contractors towards a level playing field in environmental sustainability requirements;
- Minimising carbon footprint;
- Reducing emissions of all kinds;
- Reduction or elimination of unnecessary plastic waste.
Guidance documents and technical reports help members meet international requirements and continue to improve their stewardship of the seas.
Environmental sustainability bulletins summarise key ideas and solutions to environmental and sustainability matters.
The Marine Policy & Regulatory Affairs committee and secretariat provide regular briefing to members on legislative developments and draw together members’ expertise to improve the development of regulations.
