Environmental policy

Shipping is environmentally friendly compared to road transportation, which often will be the only alternative to sea transportation. However, the environmental impact of shipping may be reduced. We acknowledge that we are an integral part of the shipping industry, and that we shall use our best endeavour within our role and authority to reduce the shipping impact on the global environment. Our environmental performance is important to our customers and employees, as well as the global society.

We will work to prevent pollution and support the environmental efforts of our customers and suppliers. Stödig Ship Management is committed to comply with all legal requirements regarding the environment and to the idea of continual improvement of our environmental performance.
