ESG and the 
shipping sector


Maritime operators are increasingly required to comply with evolving ESG standards and regulations. Position Green helps shipping companies ensure accurate, transparent data in their sustainability reporting and develop strategies that reduce impacts and drive ESG performance.


Navigating towards a sustainable shipping industry

Shipping companies face complex challenges in accurately measuring and reporting emissions and ESG impacts from their entire organization and value chain. Navigating the array of ESG frameworks and balancing compliance with industry-specific guidelines further adds to this complexity.

Having an efficient system in place to address these challenges has essentially become a license to operate. Not only is it vital for competitive advantage, it also creates an understanding of sustainability goals and processes at all levels of the organization. Position Green combines leading ESG tech and human expertise to provide customized support in the field of sustainable shipping.

  • Implement a robust data management system to collect, analyze and integrate ESG data into your overall business operations, including vessel mapping, custom default emission values (e.g. NOx, SOx, PM) and dashboards and thresholds for data quality control.
  • Ensure regulatory compliance with ready-made templates and structured data collection according to relevant industry standards and legislations, e.g. customized SASB Marine Transportation Standard template and GRI template. 
  • Automate data import processes and digitize your value chain to accurately measure, monitor and report greenhouse gas emissions by operation – adapted to the specific ownership structure.
  • Gain a comprehensive overview of ESG impacts and build optimization strategies based on data-driven insights.
  • Develop a strong sustainability strategy aligned with industry best practices and set targets that reflect your company’s strengths and ambitions.
