Shipping operations that maintain a healthy environment are of benefit to the greater human good and the shipping industry as a whole, particularly as awareness grows with respect to climate change and the need for ‘green credentials’. Changing global trends coupled with increasing scrutiny on climate change and environmental issues from stakeholders is impacting the way shipping is currently being operated. In view of this and our own commitment to the environment, operating in a responsible manner and minimising impact on the environment where possible, is key to the way business is managed at MISC.


Operating in a responsible manner and minimising impact on the environment where possible, is key to the way business is managed in MISC. The strategy will ensure our diligence in taking a proactive approach in the management of our environmental footprint with specific focus on carbon/key emissions, waste (hazardous and non-hazardous) and biodiversity. In our commitment for the environment, one of our key objectives is to ensure the importance of inculcating environmental awareness and consciousness amongst our employees. We believe this can be achieved through a structured, consistent and holistic approach with a focus on specific topics/campaigns over a time period.

2020 targets

Our 2020 Targets

Environmental performance targets for Carbon/Key Emissions and Waste and established Biodiversity programmes:

  • To achieve reduction in our carbon footprint/key emissions and waste against set targets.
  • A sustainable and long-term biodiversity conservation programme run successfully and sustained as part of the company’s agenda.

Environmental consciousness:
Well-informed and empowered employees on environmental awareness and consciousness


In deriving our Environment Strategy, the areas that have been identified as material to us in terms of managing our impact include climate change and emissions to air, waste management and biodiversity. As there are several core businesses within the Group, some of these areas may be more material than others. In this respect, the approach taken by the Group, is for each entity to be responsible for managing impact from their businesses in line with Group policies as well as with direction and governance from Group level. Environmental performance is captured and reported through various channels including the MISC Group HSSE Council and internal HSSE review meetings.
