In this annual report we naturally focus on 2021. However, in writing this in March of 2022, we are deeply saddened to see war in Europe, with a shocking humanitarian crisis unfolding in Ukraine. We sincerely hope a peaceful solution will be found soon.
Whilst the conflict has not directly affected our business operations, we are clearly concerned about the effects of energy prices and the destabilisation of Europe from a broader perspective in 2022 and beyond. We continue to monitor this situation closely.
Casting our gaze back to 2021, it has been another eventful year. We have dedicated ourselves and our strategy to supporting the UN Sustainability Goals for some years now. We saw an opportunity to reshape our business and widen our scope through this sustainability- based strategy work.
2021 was the first full year since we renamed the company “Grieg Maritime Group”, and we have worked systematically to strengthen each of our business units. To deliver on our strategy, we need to have the best talent. We have focused on strengthening our people and culture, following a pioneering “Sustainable Coworkership” program. In a world of rapid change, we need to make the right decisions and learn quickly from our mistakes. We believe that having a diverse culture that encourages debate and positively challenges the best solutions and business opportunities is better than a pure command-and-control structure.
Every day, we search for the best business opportunities, and for ways where we can make difference.
