Environmental, Social and Governance – ESG

As a global leader in the ship supply industry, we recognize the significance of driving sustainable growth and development for our stakeholders. We have developed a clear sustainable purpose to make ‘Responsible Provisions and Stores accessible to everyone at sea ’. Over the past year, we have been on a continued journey with our stakeholders to enhance our approach and achieve new levels of sustainable solutions. Now, we set more tangible plans for the future to ensure that we can act and lead with direction and ambition.

You can read about our ongoing commitment to sustainability and responsible practices in our ESG brochure. Within this brochure, you will have the opportunity to explore our performance against ESG goals and objectives that we have set for the future, encompassing both short and long-term aspirations. We strive to present a critical and transparent brochure that demonstrates the alignment of our sustainability purpose with our broader business mission. Additionally, we outline the progressive actions we are taking to generate added value for all our stakeholders.

I acknowledge that addressing ESG challenges and issues at the needed pace requires determination. We have that determination, and we view it as an opportunity to learn, grow and contribute.

Wrist Ship Supply's vision to make responsible provisions, stores and logistics accessible to everyone at sea

Our Sustainability Strategy

We recognize our responsibility in driving sustainable growth and development for our stakeholders. We challenge the common misconception that sustainability and organic growth cannot go hand in hand, which is why we have integrated our sustainability strategy, the Responsible Provisions and Stores Plan, into the core of our business (see page 11).

At Wrist, we believe that everyone should have access to responsible provisions and stores at sea. That’s why we have a clear sustainability vision to ‘Make responsible provisions, stores and logistics accessible to everyone at sea.´

  • GOAL 5 - Gender equality: To actively work towards gender equality on manager levels
  • GOAL 8 - Decent work and economic growth: To create growth and apply high standards of health and safety
  • GOAL 12 - Responsible consumption and production: To reduce waste from operations and packaging on our supply chain
  • GOAL 13 - Climate action: To minimize the carbon emissions we release
  • GOAL 14 - Life below water: To reduce negative impact on marine ecosystems
  • GOAL 15 - Life on land: To reduce negative impact on forestry ecosystems
  • GOAL 16 - Peace, justice and strong institutions: To maintain high standards of business ethics

A step in the right direction

As the world’s largest marine supplier, we have a significant responsibility to lead and set an example in our industry by minimizing our climate impact. We must achieve this and have already begun by adopting renewable energy, transitioning to electric transportation and setting ambitious climate goals. 

We listen to our stakeholders, and have identified our key areas of focus and established nine objectives for 2023-2027 followed by KPIs to meet the shifting attention and spending towards services with ESG-related value.
