Sustainability – Transport

Sustainability and the transport sector

As an industry leader in transport, we are at the forefront of the drive for sustainability and addressing the challenges it presents across the aviation, maritime and rail industries. We understand that the long-term success of many of our clients depends on a proactive approach to sustainability and we are well equipped to steer them through this within the transport sector.

How can we help?

Sustainable transportation forms an integral part of our ability to continue to provide a full-service offering to our clients.

Our credentials already reflect our foothold in sustainability, from our involvement in the drafting of the Poseidon Principles to support the IMO’s goal to reduce shipping’s total annual greenhouse gas emissions by at least 50% by 2050, to advising the Vessel Technology Assessment System (VTAS) Project, which helps inform the maritime industry on the comparative benefits of different fuel efficiency technology, and in our role as principal advisers to the Aviation Working Group (AWG) in relation to the development of industry-wide environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles in aviation.

Sustainability concerns have rocketed up the transport agenda over the past decade and so we published The Sustainability Imperative, an in-depth report that examines the shipping world’s views on sustainability and governance, what the industry collectively sees as the way forward and what actions it is taking as a result. It also asks how these issues might affect the way the shipping sector finances itself and even the very structure of the industry.

As shapers of the transport sector and its response to sustainability concerns, we are in the unique position to support our clients on the environmental aspects of the full asset lifecycle. For 40 years, our long-established and highly regarded team has helped clients confidently address the ups and downs of the aviation, maritime and rail industries, and the position is no different as sectors embark on this new era in sustainability.
