Take part in the IMPA ACT Sustainability Run 2019

August 8, 2019
If you want to promote best practice and a healthy approach to business, take part in the IMPA ACT Sustainability Run on the first day of IMPA London 2019.

Francois Marine & Offshore, the IMPA team and IMPA ACT invite you to run or walk the IMPA ACT Sustainability Trail on the morning of day 1 of IMPA London 2019 in the nearby St James' Park.

About the Sustainability Run

Stemmed from a desire to bridge the gap between sustainability and marine procurement, IMPA ACT features the first Supplier Code of Conduct in the marine procurement sector that is based on internationally-endorsed UN principles, and aims to create a global standard in responsible purchasing and supplying within the shipping industry. The run is typified by the IMPA ACT programme for responsible supply chain management and emphasises caring for the environment, human rights, labour standards and anti-corruption principles, as guided by ten universal principles of the UN Global Compact.
