MAKEEN Energy supports the UN Global Compact

In January 2018, we made a proper and profound promise to ourselves and our surroundings when we committed to support the UN Global Compact. This initiative by the United Nations mobilises businesses and organisations across the world to work for positive change in terms of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. More specifically, it outlines ten principles for corporate sustainability that aim at building and upholding a culture of integrity and responsibility for the good of our planet and its people.

With its scope and reach, the UN Global Compact is regarded as the world's largest corporate sustainability initiative. And as one of the steps on our sustainability journey, MAKEEN Energy is taking an active part in turning the ideas, visions and goals into reality.

As our organisation is spread across continents, the same goes for our initiatives. We know that it takes a dedicated effort to spread the actions and involve people in all wings of our house. By supporting the UN Global Compact, we have a good tool that on the one hand ensures to keep sustainability on our minds and on the other hand helps identify areas where we can do better. In a big house of energy like ours, there are still many opportunities to improve or change - our sustainability journey has just begun.

The Sustainable Ocean Principles

As one of the first companies in the world, MAKEEN Energy signed the Sustainable Ocean Principles in October 2019. This United Nations initiative builds upon and supplements the UN Global Compact, and it recognises the urgency and global importance of a healthy ocean.

As a signatory, MAKEEN Energy will take action to promote the well-being of the ocean for current and future generations. We are convinced that we can take part in making a difference, and especially our solutions for liquefied natural gas (LNG) have great potential to have a positive impact.

LNG is the cleanest fossil fuel on earth, and its emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases are significantly lower compared to other conventional fuels. In MAKEEN Energy's division for LNG solutions, KC LNG, we design and deliver various kinds of LNG solutions - including bunkering solutions that make it possible to fuel ferries with a more environmentally friendly fuel. And by using a cleaner fuel for ferries, we make transportation by sea as responsible as possible.
