Navigator Gas focuses on ESG: 35% of leadership positions to be filled by women by 2028

Navigator Holdings published its 2022 ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) report where it noted that it aims, among other things, that 35% of leadership positions will be filled by women by 2028.

Developed with support from Boston Consulting Group and Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping, Navigator’s ESG Strategy identifies three ‘lighthouse’ focus areas, where the Company believes that, through its capabilities, it can make the biggest impact and lead the shipping industry. In these three areas, Navigator aims to:

  • Contribute to the shipping industry’s target to become net zero by 2050;
  • Derive one third of revenues from green cargo such as blue/green ammonia and CO2 by 2030; and
  • Ensure that 35% of onshore leadership positions are filled by women by 2028.
