Following a successful partnership with IMPA ACT member Dampskibsselskabet NORDEN A/S, PJ Diesel Engineering has finalised the element of compliance with the IMPA ACT Supplier Code of Conduct. The company has now set up policies and procedures for dealing with its operations' adverse impacts on human rights, environment and anti-corruption principles.
Ole Lykke, Head of Strategic Purchasing at Norden, said to PJ Diesel: "We know that establishing relevant processes requires both time and resources, especially in the initial phases, therefore we appreciate that your company has prioritized this engagement."
In response to being included in IMPA ACT's database for preferred suppliers, CEO Anne-Mette Elsborg of PJ Diesel Engineering, stated: "Being part of the IMPA ACT database validates toward our current and even potential clients, that PJ Diesel is willing to cooperate and already has prioritised areas such as human rights including labor rights, protection of the environment and anti-corruption principles. We have spent a lot of resources to ensure continued compliance, not only to standard but through our continued dedication with our management system and policies."
This being said, IMPA wants to wish a warm welcome to the newest joiner of IMPA's initiative for responsible supply chain management in the global shipping industry. The company's dedication and efforts to complete the programme are truly remarkable and the initiative is lucky to have PJ Diesel Engineering on board as an IMPA ACT Preferred Supplier. Onward and upward to a more responsible industry!
