Our Approach to Reporting

Sembcorp Marine has been reporting on its sustainability performance on an annual basis since 2011. Our Sustainability Reports are integrated into the company’s Annual Reports and can be found here. Together with the online content in the Sustainability section of the website, we aim to present a holistic view of Sembcorp Marine’s sustainability efforts.

The reported content relate to the Group’s Singapore yards, unless otherwise stated, as their operations have the most significant impact on environmental, social, governance and economic indicators. The Group continues to progressively expand the scope of its sustainability reporting globally.
