Shell is first lubricants supplier to secure IMPA ACT Accreditation
Shell Marine has become the first company involved in the development, supply and support of marine lubricants to receive accreditation under the International Marine Purchasing Association’s IMPA ACT Sustainable Maritime Suppliers scheme. The preferred supplier status is conferred within the IMPA Responsible Supply Chain Management Initiative which seeks to improve the economic, social and environmental sustainability of international shipping and marine industries.
“We, at Shell Marine, are delighted to be the first in our sector to secure accreditation under the scheme,” says Jan Toschka, Executive Director Shell Marine. As a global supplier with more than 30 blending plants and a maritime supply network of more than 700 ports in 58 countries, anyone visiting or working with Shell Marine will know how seriously we take our responsibilities as a world citizen.
“However, we also realise it is imperative that our own strict code of ethics is fit to stand up to the scrutiny of external parties. That’s why we see this recognition under the IMPA ACT scheme as particularly important. Our customers also confirm that the IMPA ACT preferred supplier status is being used as a benchmark for quality throughout the supply chain.”
