Sustainable business is key to our strategy and at the heart of our mission statement: Together, we enable sustainable maritime development.

SustainabilityFocus AreasOur ApproachReports

Our goal is to make sustainability an integral part of everything that we do. This is an important priority for Gard as we believe that companies with a clear strategy supporting a more sustainable ocean economy will be better placed than others to succeed and create long-term value in future markets.

Sustainability is not just something done by someone else, it is done by each and every one of us

Rolf Thore Roppestad, CEO Gard


Integrating ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) principles into all aspects of our business doesn't happen quickly. It's an ongoing effort. We're constantly working on it, trying to understand the potential challenges and opportunities. We know it's a journey we'll embark on with our stakeholders, and we may not have all the answers right from the start.
