Our activities are inextricably linked to the environmental considerations related to climate change and the energy transition.

How we work to minimise environmental impact of our operations, whilst actively supporting the energy transition

This creates specific risks and opportunities which, when managed effectively and responsibly, will reposition James Fisher for a sustainable future.

James Fisher is committed to upholding responsible business practices by:

  • Assessing and quantifying the impact of our operations on the environment
  • Developing and implementing plans to conduct our operations more responsibly, identifying opportunities to improve
  • Advocating for the environment where we operate and engage in preservation/restoration initiatives

We aim to directly engage all stakeholders, internal and external, and increase coordination of activities across the Group to have a net positive impact on the environment, tackle climate change, improve health and wellbeing, responsibly consume materials and energy resources, reduce inequality, contribute to economic growth and champion a low-carbon economy.

How we engage on environmental issues

  • The Board considered climate-related risks and opportunities on a continuous basis, such as when deciding on the strategic direction of the Group, acquisitions and divestments or major capital expenditure
  • A Board member attended Sustainability Committee meetings on a regular basis, bringing ESG expertise while strengthening communication between management and the Board
  • The Board engaged with shareholders directly to understand their ESG priorities. 
The James Fisher Tankships division is demonstrating its commitment to reduced carbon emissions with plans to add two dual-fuel tankers to the James Fisher Everard (JFE) fleet in 2022.

How we supported environmental issues during 2023

  • We continued to focus on our performance and embedding ESG considerations into business as usual 
  • As part of the Group's transformation, the groundwork is underway to reshape our portfolio including identifying innovative solutions to support our customers' energy transition
  • The Group continued its reporting and disclosures in accordance with the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), the UK SECR requirements, TCFD and the UK Government's introduction of reporting requirements through the Companies (Strategic Report) (Climate-related Financial Disclosure) Regulations 2022
  • Net zero and GHG emissions awareness webinar sessions took place and learning pathways were identified 
  • A gap analysis was conducted which will inform our detailed climate transition planning activities in 2024.
