At IMPA, we want to take all the stress out of responsible supply chain management (RSCM) and corporate social responsibility (CSR) for you and your company. That’s why we formed IMPA ACT in 2013.

IMPA ACT is the responsible supply chain management (RSCM) and corporate social responsibility (CSR) platform for the international shipping and marine industry. It’s an initiative that we formed to help ship owners, operators and suppliers show their commitment to these important business strategies. We see both as vital to the shipping industry’s future.

Becoming a member is easy, and once you’ve joined you will be part of a global initiative that focuses on the Supplier Code of Conduct. The SCoC is a set of social, environmental and economic principles that are based on internationally endorsed UN minimum expectations for businesses and represent current best practice.


How IMPA ACT can help you

Part of our role is to take all the guesswork out of RSCM and corporate social responsibility for you and your company. We want to save you time and energy so you can get on with your busy lives, all while making shipping industry a better place.

You’ll gain access to the full range of resources and guidance, including draft content, case studies as well as step-by-step guides to help with the development of your RSCM and CSR strategies.

You will also be able to take advantage of the IMPA ACT Members’ section, where you can identify suppliers that are engaging in the IMPA ACT RSCM process and track their performance.

On top of all of this, IMPA ACT offers tailored training on RSCM and CSR and provides consulting on RSCM policy, strategy and implementation for the shipping industry.
