The IMPA Working Groups are clusters of industry-leading specialists, senior-level purchasers and major suppliers who volunteer to help our Council and administration teams create projects and programmes, develop these according to what the industry wants, and promote them laterally to colleagues in the maritime business.
The IMPA ACT Working Group
Born in 2013 under IMPA's umbrella, the IMPA ACT Responsible Supply Chain Management System has been the result of the efforts of several purchasing professionals from NORDEN and Lauritzen, as well as Danish sustainability consultancy Global CSR. Today, the programme runs strong with 100+ companies in maritime using it as the industry standard, and this is no small part thanks to the dedicated taskforce behind it.
The IMPA SAVE Working Group
Led by IMPA's Special Ambassador for Sustainability and Chair, Mikael Karlsson, SAVE is IMPA's newer sustainability ambition, created to bring together members from the industry to support sustainability initiatives and to take action that supports the UN 2030 agenda. Here are the people steering the wheel of change.
