A strategic initiative

Sustainability is one of Skuld’s strategic initiatives and we have initiated a programme which includes development targets and activities within relevant Skuld areas. The programme is supported by Skuld’s management and is currently being integrated in core business processes; Loss Prevention, Underwriting, Finance and HR and Communication.

We have started the process of establishing robust KPIs and targets which will be followed up and reported on.

Shipping and Skuld’s role

Skuld members and clients work towards the global SDGs by implementing various initiatives within their organisations to comply with future legislation and requirements.

Skuld contributes to sustainable solutions through assessing and surveying shipping risks, conducting comprehensive casualty response service and performing extensive loss prevention programmes. The aim of these is to safeguard casualties and prevent injury to people, environment and property.

Skuld’s expertise benefits society through supporting a precautionary approach to foreseeable health-, safety- and environmental-related impacts of operations. We will continue building on that foundation and our role will be to ensure that we assist our customers as they adapt to the growing global requirements.
