Our impact: environmental, social & governance
Our commitment to ESG
IGS is committed to building a financially strong business for the long term to the benefit of our shareholders, our crew, our customers and the planet. We feel a powerful obligation to ensure that we contribute to a sustainable future and that our business continues to grow in an ethical but profitable manner. For us, Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors are not a check-box exercise but have been crucial in securing investment from socially conscious, impact finance: these are values that are fully embedded in the ethos of IGS. People choose to work at IGS not just because we offer great jobs but because they genuinely want to help us to fulfill our sense of purpose.

From reducing food miles to powering our farms with renewables, our technology helps enable a greener future.
