By signing up to the Ocean Sustainable Principles, we are committing to take action to prevent pollution, better manage our resources and ensure long-term sustainability of our operation."
An initiative of the UN Global Compact, of which ERM has been a member for 10 years, this set of nine core principles provides a framework for a healthy and productive ocean. The Sustainable Ocean Principles were developed in consultation with stakeholders from the private sector, NGOs, academic institutions and UN agencies.
Endorsing the Sustainable Ocean Principles is an aspirational pledge. Signatories recognize the urgency and global importance of a healthy, sustainable ocean and are promising to take action to promote the well-being of our oceans for current and future generations. Those who sign the principles agree to:
ERM will proactively help our clients to develop and implement robust and comprehensive practices and stay up to date with the latest research. Although there is no financial commitment, signatory companies must publically report on their progress on an annual basis. Beginning in 2022, will be publishing our progress in our annual sustainability report.
