Bravely Advancing
What’s Possible

At Crowley, our purpose – bravely advancing what’s possible to elevate people and planet – guides who we are and how we operate, both today and into the future. To fulfill this purpose, we need to make every facet of our organization more sustainable. We work hard to foster our company culture that emphasizes safety in everything we do, and develops a shared sense of responsibility as we earn the trust of our stakeholders and build long-term value with them. Our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) approach reflects our progress to animate our sustainability ambition: to be the most sustainable and innovative maritime and logistics solutions company in the Americas.

Material Issues

We engaged with internal and external stakeholders to rank the topics they believed should be a high priority for Crowley going forward. Instead of simply providing a snapshot of where things stand today, we encouraged them to look toward the future. We wanted to know which issues they felt would be most crucial in the years to come. The issues that are most material to our stakeholders and business success are in the top-right quadrant. These priority issues inform and are deeply ingrained in our sustainability strategy.
