Principle 4

Transparency

The intent of the transparency principle is to ensure both the awareness of the Sea Cargo Charter, and that accurate information can be published by the Sea Cargo Charter Secretariat at www.seacargocharter.org in a timely manner.

PRINCIPLE

“We will publicly acknowledge that we are a Signatory of the Sea Cargo Charter and we will publish the results of the climate alignment scores of our chartering activities on an annual basis in line with the Technical Guidance.”

OUR COMMITMENT

1. Upon becoming a Signatory, the Signatory will publicly acknowledge that it is a Signatory of the Sea Cargo Charter.

2. On an annual basis, each Signatory will report the vessel category climate alignment scores and total annual activity climate alignment score of its chartering activities and supporting information, as per the Accountability requirements, to the Secretariat no later than April 30. This requirement takes effect for each Signatory in the calendar year after the calendar year in which it became a Signatory.

3. On an annual basis, each Signatory will publish the vessel category climate alignment scores and total annual activity alignment score of its chartering activities in relevant institutional reports on a timeline that is appropriate for that Signatory. This requirement takes effect for each Signatory in the calendar year after the calendar year in which it became a Signatory.
