Our Key Impacts

Our Key Impacts

Propelling a vessel across oceans and operating a network of offices require many resources, the outputs of which impact the environment, our staff and the communities in which we operate. To minimise these impacts, Pacific Basin has ship and shore-based initiatives focused on reducing atmospheric emissions, marine discharges and resource consumption, enhancing the safety and wellbeing of our staff, and enhancing the quality of the relationships and interactions we have with our communities.
