CREATING A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE

TOWARDS A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE

As the solutions experts in conventional and specialist petroleum shipping, we deliver safe, high-quality services to the world’s energy companies, refineries and traders.

SAFETY

The safety of our people, our ships and their cargoes sits at the very top of our corporate agenda. Our ‘Goal Zero’ policy both at sea and onshore drives us towards the over-arching aspiration of zero accidents, incidents or spills.

Our operations are fully compliant with all statutory, industry, customer and vetting requirements, and we welcome new regulations that allow us to optimise safety and environmental performance across the maritime industry.

Peak safety and performance quality levels are achieved by our talented pool of people at sea and ashore.  

ENVIRONMENT

Protection of the natural environment is extremely important to us and our customers, hence we have an active programme in place to ensure that new tonnage joining our fleet is significantly kinder to the planet than the vessels they replace.

We invest in future-proof assets and adopt a wide range of responsible operating practices and protective solutions that propel us towards the ultimate goal of safe, secure and clean oceans for all.

Our commitment to managing the environmental footprint of each of our vessels goes beyond emissions control measures, by adopting a wide range of onboard eco-innovations and technology to maximise fuel efficiency and reduce impact on the surrounding environment.

PEOPLE

Our people drive our organisation. We are committed to hiring and retaining the highest-quality, skilled and experienced teams to match our business needs.

We value the diversity of our people of nearly 20 nationalities, and believe a cosmopolitan workforce fosters greater innovation, helps us better understand and serve our customers, and empowers our people to deliver their best.

As an equal-opportunities employer, we embrace gender diversity with women making up almost 50% of our enigmatic global workforce.

CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

AT AET, we conduct our business with high ethical standards and in compliance with all relevant laws. Together with our stakeholder MISC, we subscribe to the Group’s Code of Conduct and Business Ethics (CoBE).

Our CoBE provides the framework for enhancement and monitoring of good business ethics and ensuring our business operations are carried out with the upmost integrity.

As our business continues to grow, AET also expects our business partners performing work or services for or on behalf of AET to comply with the relevant parts of the CoBE when performing such work or services. In particular, the CoBE expressly prohibits improper solicitation, bribery, corrupt activity and non-compliance not only by employees and directors but also by third parties performing work or services for or on our behalf.

COMMUNITY

We are fully committed to sustaining our efforts, elevating our standards and practices and exploring innovative ways to reach new levels of excellence in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

We believe that serving our communities is not only integral to our success as a company, it is part of our individual responsibility as members of society, as well as the wider maritime community.

While we are global in nature, we give back to the local communities in which we live, work and play – particularly those initiatives that focus on the betterment of society. Our staff participate in numerous charity fundraising events, from running marathons to participating in dragon boat races, collecting goods for the distribution to those less fortunate and clearing beaches of rubbish and debris.

STAKEHOLDER

At AET, we thrive on creating and maintain long-term effective partnerships. By working alongside our customers and business partners in fully understanding their goals and aspirations, this allows us to continually reshape our fleet and build on our capabilities. We aim to progress our customer relationships from reactive to intuitive, so that our solutions remain innovative, effective and aligned with our customers’ evolving activities.

We create value solutions by leveraging the capabilities of our commercial and technical teams to drive multiple and long-term projects for our customers.
