- About us
In this section
Supporting the local community and the wider world has always formed an important part of our attitude to corporate responsibility, whether in terms of direct donations or in supporting our employees as they strive to make a difference to society.
In 2013, as part of this continuing committment, we formalised these activities by establishing a new Philanthropy Committee, chaired by the finance director and comprising representatives from different parts of our business. The Committee identified three potential areas towards which support should be focussed: maritime causes, childrens' charities and health issues.
Staff are encouraged to nominate charities that fall under these broad categories and these are regularly reviewed throughout the year by the Philanthropy Committee. From time to time, recognising that world events can produce situations of urgent need, the Committee has made specific one off donations.
