Our Environmental Policy
Both the employee individual behavior of each employee and the maritime operations are inseparable from environmental protection. This remains a key challenge for Louis Dreyfus Armateurs. Based on the risks and opportunities assessment, which are an integral part of the QHSE Management System, our objectives are to avoid pollution and accidental dumping at sea, reduce our environmental impact and perfect our waste recycling recovery system.
We are committed to continually improving our Environmental Management System and to:
- Being compliant with current environmental conventions, customer requirements and other applicable requirements. International regulations are strictly respected in all activities and each vessel has dedicated management plans. Our Environmental Management System meets the ISO 14001 requirements;
- Identifying and analyzing environmental aspects and impacts and implementing the necessary preventive and corrective actions to control the most significant risks;
- Sensitizing all employees to respect the environment;
- Involving everyone. The contribution of every employee, both onshore personnel and seafarers to QHSE management system is crucial to minimize our environmental impact.
Louis Dreyfus Armateurs signed the Blue Charter which affirms French Shipowners’ commitment to go about their business in a way that is sustainable and environmentally-friendly.
