SAGT committed to sustainable business

25 September, 2022

South Asia Gateway Terminals (Pvt) Ltd (SAGT), in the Port of Colombo launched its third consecutive Sustainability Report for 2021/22. Titled ‘The Needs of the Present, sustained for the Future’ the report outlines SAGT’s commitment to driving a sustainable business.

The report details the terminal’s sustainability performance and compares the progression of the performance indicators over the years. SAGT’s Sustainability Report remains the only formal sustainability report published by a terminal operator within the Port of Colombo.

The sustainability data presented in the report is collected, analysed, and published in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards. Reporting based on the GRI standards enables SAGT to report the impact of its activities in a transparent and structured manner.

SAGT’s CEO, Romesh David, said, “For over two decades, SAGT has been at the forefront of embracing new possibilities and raising the bar for terminal operators in the South Asian region. In publishing our Sustainability Report for the second consecutive year, SAGT continues to reinforce our commitment to be an industry benchmark, not only in Sri Lanka but also the region”.

SAGT has adopted the new GRI standards released in November 2021 in the presentation of the data provided in this report allowing for increased transparency and comprehensive reporting. The SAGT Sustainability Report for 2021/22 and the data presented have been independently audited by DNV GL in compliance with global best practices.
