SMT is always conscious of its impact on the environment and the communities we affect. We strive to assure that all business activities support environmental protection, community engagement, healthy and safe working environments, and economic development.
The company is an active supporter of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and aims to actively contribute to the IMO’s target goals. SMT focuses its sustainability efforts on four core themes: Health & Safety, Environment, Community, and Our People.
SMT would like to introduce our official sustainability mascot, Herbert the Sea Dog. Herbert is a scrappy little dog who lives by the sea in New Zealand. His story goes, that one fine day he set sail with his owner but the weather quickly turned bad, throwing Herbert overboard. For 30 hours Herbert was left to endure the open ocean alone before being found. Herbert’s bravery and dedication helped save his life, now he is dedicated to helping us become the most sustainable shipping company we can be!
Herbert has been adapted from Robyn Belton’s children book Herbert: The Brave Sea Dog. Find a copy here
