Leading the way towards truly sustainable shipping
Since the beginning of 1990, long before environment became a topic on the agenda among most ship owners, we have worked systematically to reduce greenhouse gases emitted by shipping. Today, we put all our efforts regarding this into operating the fleets we manage more fuel efficiently. This has a positive impact on emissions reductions. By monitoring performance we have managed to decrease fuel consumption with 40 000 tonnes over four years. Our work towards truly sustainable shipping never stops, we continuously work to keep improving all areas within our business; from printing out only when needed in our land organisation to waste recycling and fuel usage onboard.
Among other things onboard we have:
- an online performance monitoring system which enables us to have full control of fuel performance for hull and propeller systems
- strengthened routines for engine performance follow up
- implemented solutions for optimization of trim, draft and voyage planning.
In our newbuilding process, we work closely and pro-actively with shipyards and suppliers. All our partners are evaluated on how they work in reducing their environmental footprint and having a life cycle perspective.
Wallenius Marine have worked with sustainable recycling of vessels over long time and have institutionalized processes and procedures for how to select recycling yards and how to manage the asset up to recycling. This enable us to further limit the environmental footprint over the lifetime of the asset and the optimal partner for ship owner. Based on recent recycling, the process ensures that 98 % of the materials is recycled
Future of zero emissions
Wallenius Marine strives for zero emissions and has a roadmap with actions to achieve this: ZERO (Zero Emission RoRo). The roadmap is focusing on energy consumption, energy carriers and emissions to the atmosphere, and shows that with today’s technology it is already possible to build completely emission free vessels.
We are ISO certified by Lloyd’s Register for ISO9001 and ISO14001.
