We are committed

Signatory to the UN Global Compact

Skuld became a signatory to the UN Global Compact Report in September 2019. This is an important tool in our sustainability work. 

Skuld supports the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. We will report yearly using the GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) system for measurement and reporting.

Member of 'Getting to Zero 2030 Coalition'

Skuld is committed to the initiative ‘Getting to Zero 2030 Coalition’ that was launched at The UN climate action summit 2019 in New York.

The coalition is a partnership between the Global Maritime Forum, the Friends of Ocean action, and the World Economic Forum with over 90 member companies.

By 2030, the coalition is committed to launch commercially viable deep sea zero emission vessels powered by zero emission fuels.

Skuld has signed UN women empowerment principles

Skuld has signed the UN Women Empowerment Principles to support the advancement of equality between women and men in Skuld and in society. The principles present seven steps that business and other organisations can take to advance and empower women.

“At Skuld we promote an organisational culture which values gender equality and diversity. Providing equal employment and career development opportunities and increasing the percentage of women in managerial and key positions is closely linked to our strategy for the future.”

Skuld is committed to the SHE Index

Skuld is committed to the SHE Index, which, powered by Ernst & Young is a catalyst for encouraging stakeholders to focus on diversity and inclusion in leadership and workforce, equal compensation and work life balance. Thus, promoting gender equality in general.

The purpose of the SHE Index is to document how far individual companies have come with regards to gender balance and is meant to reflect the status of gender equality in corporate life. In addition, it helps understand the underlying factors in achieving progress with respect to equality.

The She Index is a Norwegian initiative; however, work has started to launch this in other countries.
