(NEW YORK) ABS is supporting McAllister on its sustainability journey with greenhouse gas inventory and sustainability reporting services for its fleet of more than 75 tugboats, crew boats, and barges.

The team helped McAllister establish a transparent governance and stakeholder engagement strategy, identify material ESG factors and set short- and long-term targets, and develop recommendations to generate continuous improvement.
