The I Exist Too 'Declaration of LGBTQI+ Inclusion within the Maritime Industry' is a pledge to take concrete steps to create a more inclusive environment for the LGBTQI+ community within our organisations, and in the wider maritime industry.




The I Exist Too Declaration

The I Exist Too declaration is an acknowledgement that the maritime industry has historically been an environment that has not been inclusive or supportive of the LGBTQI+ community. Discrimination, harassment, and unequal treatment have been too common, creating barriers for the full participation of LGBTQI+ individuals in the industry. Therefore, to be committed to both human rights and improving the diversity and inclusivity of the maritime industry, it is important to create a welcoming and supportive workplace for all individuals, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or sex characteristics.

The Five Principles


Zero Tolerance for Discrimination.


Support for LGBTQI+ Employees.


Supplier Diversity.


Support for LGBTQI+ Employees.


Reflect and Review.
