We strive to make our ports drivers of positive change, with sustainability being at the very core of what we do.
Our sustainability initiatives are focused on six pillars: society, economy, environment, employees, clients and governance. We make decisions which have social and environmental benefits as well making sound financial sense.
Framework, Materiality and Standards
Our purpose is to make our ports drivers of positive change and sustainable growth around the world. With this in mind, we use internationally recognized frameworks and standards to continuously assess and challenge ourselves to be better and to ensure we remain a good global citizen.
ICTSI is committed to ensuring a sustainable future by maintaining efficient operations and minimising the impact of port operations on the environment. We are continuously seeking to improve our environmental programs and policies, and have made it our duty to our stakeholders to address carbon emissions, manage waste more efficiently and consume fewer natural resources.
Our ports play an important role in supporting businesses and communities, and we are committed to actively helping our host nations to maximize their port infrastructure investments and boost trade as a driver of sustainable development.
ICTSI places great importance on robust corporate governance. We continue to uphold the principles and policies embodied in our Manual on Corporate Governance, which serves as the framework of rules, systems and processes that governs the performance of the ICTSI Board of Directors and Management.
Our employees are essential to ICTSI’s success as a leading port developer, manager and operator, and the way we treat our employees is fundamental to the way we want to do business. This begins with ensuring respect for internationally recognized human rights and labor standards in all our workplaces.
Offering customer service excellence is key to successful relationships, which is why we invest significantly in digital technologies, upgrading our processes and equipment to ensure our operations are safe, efficient and run smoothly 24 hours a day. Our cutting-edge digital innovations have played a huge role in offering an efficient journey for our customers without loose ends.
We are committed to serving the communities we directly and indirectly impact, through programs and projects designed to protect and uphold their rights. Working closely with local communities and governments is important as it enables us to learn about what they need. Our initiatives range from education, health and disaster relief and response through to building schools and hospitals.
