Shipping groups included in the ESG 100 report into the largest companies on the Oslo Stock Exchange have mostly improved their ratings in 2020.

Nine "pure" shipping companies were assessed for their environmental, social and governance (ESG) reporting into their strategies, goals, risks and opportunities by The Governance Group, which produces the ESG 100 report.

Seven of the eight shipping companies received a higher overall rating with one, Golden Ocean Group, unchanged from last year, while Hafnia was a newcomer to this year’s sample.
