The shipbuilding industry is experiencing a transformative shift, driven by the urgency and strategic importance of sustainability programs. As we navigate this evolving landscape, it’s evident that sustainability is no longer just a buzzword—it’s a decisive factor in supplier selection and business success for this industry.

The Rising Stock of GHG Emissions and Sustainability

European clients are at the forefront of this shift, demanding detailed sustainability goals, comprehensive Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) reports, and Climate Disclosure Project (CDP) submissions. These requirements are not mere formalities; they are becoming critical benchmarks for business viability in the global market. 

Sustainability goals are no longer just aspirational statements; they are concrete, measurable objectives that companies must set and achieve. These goals often encompass reducing greenhouse gas emissions, minimizing waste, and enhancing energy efficiency. Comprehensive ESG reports provide stakeholders with a transparent view of a company’s environmental impact, social contributions, and governance practices. CDP submissions, in particular, are crucial for tracking and managing carbon footprints, helping companies identify areas for improvement, and report their progress to investors and clients. 

The Imperative of EU Regulations

 The urgency of compliance is driven by the European Union’s stringent regulations, such as the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM). This regulation imposes a carbon tariff on imported goods, making it imperative for companies to report the carbon footprint of their products. The shift is leading clients to re-evaluate their suppliers, and favoring those who are committed to carbon neutrality and sustainability goals aligned to EU regulations.

CBAM aims to prevent carbon leakage by ensuring that imported goods are subject to the same carbon costs as products manufactured within the EU. This means that companies must not only understand their carbon emissions but also take steps to reduce them. Additionally, the upcoming Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD) requires companies to identify, prevent, and mitigate adverse human rights and environmental impacts in their operations and supply chains. Compliance with these regulations is becoming essential for maintaining access to the European market.
