James Riddick, Head of Procurement at Peel Ports Group, said: “This is a significant step for us. As a responsible business, it has always been our aim to ensure that we are working with organisations that conform to our own ethical codes of practice.

“This platform will enable us to work together with suppliers to better manage our social and environmental performance and protect people working in the supply chain.”

Jon Hancock, CEO of Sedex, stated: “Sedex is delighted to welcome Peel Ports as a member. We welcome their commitment to sustainable business, and look forward to supporting them to achieve their social and environmental sustainability goals.”  

In August, Peel Ports welcomed for the first time a new energy efficient liquefied natural gas (LNG) dredger as it strives to improve the sustainability of its operations.

More recently, Greenock and KGV ports, part of Peel Ports’ Clydeport Cluster, reached a significant milestone by achieving ISO-9001 re-certification.
