Our established programs for environmental awareness and responsibility, social interactions and fairness, and a diverse work force are bound by an ownership culture and supported by a corporate governance framework that promotes transparent, ethical, legal and fair behavior.
Shipping represents the most efficient mode of cargo transportation – compared to ground, rail and air – in terms of energy consumptions against distance travelled and cargo carried. However, as the largest independent owner of containerships, Seaspan recognizes its responsibility as a good corporate citizen, and strives to embed ESG considerations into every stage of its ship development, operations and recycling.
