As a veteran global carrier and a world leader in container shipping, ZIM has always been at the forefront in terms of maintaining the highest standards with respect to environmental protection, human resources and business ethics. Over recent years, as the awareness of sustainability issues has continued to grow in the face of the huge challenges of climate change and resource depletion, ZIM has invested more than ever before in the implementation of modes of operation, work procedures, training and guidelines aimed at strengthening the commitment to these standards across all aspects of our operation. Special attention is devoted to minimizing the carbon footprint of the organization through reduced emissions, both at sea and ashore.
ZIM’s first annual Sustainability Report reflects a longstanding, ongoing organizational effort, stretching over many years, to position ZIM as a sustainability frontrunner.
While this report focuses on all aspects of sustainability, from corporate governance to community relations, a key section is dedicated to ZIM’s environmental efforts as a vessel operator on a global scale.
As we face new global challenges and new regulatory demands, our task is to double our efforts towards sustainability in every field of our activity. ZIM’s Sustainability Report is a testament to our ongoing efforts and a roadmap to future challenges and accomplishments.
