The UK’s Tank Storage Association (TSA) has launched its new Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Charter.
The TSA worked with its member organisation to develop the Charter, which includes a framework to assist member in developing common ESG policies. The commitments stated in the Charter, which was signed by senior leaders from TSA member organisations, include complying with all relevant environmental legislation, having a code of ethics for all staff and providing a health and safety policy to give information to employees on the management of health and safety at work.
‘TSA’s members play a vital role in the UK’s economy by providing the critical infrastructure necessary for the transportation of bulk liquids, creating jobs and fostering innovation. Through adherence to the Charter, our members affirm their shared commitment to environmental, social and governance principles. Our association continues leading from the front and this, together with our Safety Leadership Charter and Significant Indicators programme, demonstrates our commitment to strive for continuous improvement,’ says TSA executive director Peter Davidson.
The ESG Charter follows on from the TSA’s Safety Leadership Charter, which was launched in July 2020 to affirm the sector’s commitment to process safety.
