Investment in quality assets is essential to ensure reliable timely and high quality experience for our customers which are essential to retaining the Group’s pivotal position in Ireland’s international logistics chain.
People & Culture
Our customers’ experience is directly affected through their interaction with our employees and third party contractors.
Pursuit of investment opportunities within stringent risk and reward hurdles and avoidance of speculative financial positions.
The operational safety of our vessels and terminal facilities is paramount to maintaining the reputation of our brands which is vital to future success and a strong safety culture is promoted across all activities.
The Group seeks to minimise the impact of its activities on the environment through constant innovation, efficiency and awareness.
Strategy in Action
Decarbonising our Terminal Operations
The Group are setting a target to achieve a 70% emissions reduction in our Dublin (DFT) and Belfast (BCT) terminal operations by 2025, versus 2020 levels. We are also targeting net zero DFT and BCT terminal operations by 2030. Since 2017, there has been significant investment in electrically powered rubber-tyred gantry cranes at DFT and BCT. Company cars are being replaced with electric and hybrid models in line with replacement cycles. Since mid-2020, the electricity supply for our DFT terminal and Dublin offices is certified green, while our Belfast Terminal has been powered by 100 percent green electricity for the last several years.
Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems
Total Group investment for supply and installation of EGCS is estimated at approximately €25 million. In addition to improving ICG’s environmental performance this investment allows the Group to consume lower cost fuel oils and in the event that a vessel may become surplus to operational requirement allows for greater geographical operational ability increasing the marketability of the vessel to a third party.
