ESG Governance

The Company is managed through its executive bodies, the General Meeting, the Board of Directors (the Board) and the Executive Management. The Board holds overall responsibility for governance of ESG matters.

The Board has delegated responsibility and authority to the Risk, Audit and Sustainability Committee, which acts as a preparatory and advisory body for the Board, helping to define the Company’s ESG Strategy, including setting its goals, targets and action plans. The CEO executes the Board’s approach and decisions regarding ESG matters and informs the Board on progress quarterly. The Chief Compliance Officer takes ownership of all policies and is responsible for their implementation. 

To reduce ESG risks in our operations and onboard our ships, MPCC requires that its third-party technical managers are certified according to quality and environmental management systems, such as ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015. Third-party crewing agencies ensure the employment of seafarers in accordance with the International Safety Management (ISM) Code 1 and SOLAS 2, STCW 3 and the 2006 Maritime Labor Convention. Our approach to managing ESG topics is embedded in our policies, frameworks, and processes.
