Our partnership with our Members is integral to our strategy and thinking in relation to sustainability, as with all other aspects of Club business.
Since 1885 the Club has fully outsourced its management to Thomas Miller. We are working closely with Thomas Miller in relation to its ESG strategy with a view to developing a better understanding of our impact and then driving improvements.
We are a founding member of the International Group of P&I Clubs, through which Group clubs pool their respective risks and arrange collective reinsurance, meaning that Group clubs have been able to pay for compensation and clean up even when the largest of incidents have occurred. The Group structure also provides a forum through which safety-related lessons can be shared to prevent or minimise future incidents, and through which the Group clubs can work together towards sustainable goals. Further details are set out in the Group's sustainability report.
We are a founding member of and leading contributor to Together in Safety, which is a non-regulatory industry consortium connecting the maritime sector with the common purpose of working together to protect seafarers’ lives while delivering improved business efficiency and commercial effectiveness.
We are also a member of the Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN) and, together with the other members of MACN, we are committed to eliminate maritime corruption.
We have also partnered with a number of maritime charities in order to have a positive impact, including a number of projects focused on improving the health and wellbeing of seafarers.
We are proud to present the UK P&I Club's first Sustainability Report, which sets out the Club's current approach to sustainability and our plan to make our business more sustainable in the future.
