To demonstrate Members’ commitment to INTERTANKO’s Tanker Industry Voluntary Code of Conduct and their commitment to best practice in general, the vast majority of Council Members endorsed the Code of Conduct during their recent meeting in New York by publicly signing it on a large banner.


INTERTANKO has drawn up this Code of Conduct in order to assist in promoting a collective responsibility to act at all times with the highest standards of honesty, integrity and respect towards one another, to encourage compliance with general standards of good corporate citizenship.


INTERTANKO will now seek further engagement with Members and Associate Members as well as other stakeholders.


The ultimate aim of INTERTANKO’s Sustainability Project is to help bring about changes in behaviour which make the tanker business function better for all involved.
