In order for sustainability to remain embedded in our operations, we take a holistic view of our business and its various points of impact. This means looking beyond our balance sheet and to the areas to which our business is intrinsically linked: the environment, society, economy and governance/ethics. We want to ensure that we're taking responsibility for our impact in these areas and contributing to, rather than diminishing, their health and value.
Intrepid is also a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact - a framework used to align a company’s operations and strategies with universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption.
We've integrated respect for people and the environment into our company culture in a variety of ways, most notably through the company's core values - all Intrepid staff are rated on their contribution to environmental and social sustainability in their annual performance reviews.
To ensure that we're working on managing our impact and reducing our carbon footprint across the business, Intrepid has integrated a number of sustainability goals into key performance measures across the company:
- Company KPIs - Intrepid has a company goal around sustainability.
- Our subsidiary offshore companies have a local sustainability KPI that they need to achieve.
- Our staff are also rated on their individual contributions to sustainability at Intrepid through their annual performance reviews.
Since signing the United Nations Global Compact, Intrepid has gone on to create a Sustainability Policy which guides the way the company manages its impacts and how it goes about making decisions.
