About 90% of world trade is transported by the international shipping industry. Moreover, shipping is the least environmentally damaging way of commercial transport.
However, with a controlled fleet of more than 150 vessels, our operations have environmental impacts and we acknowledge our responsibility in this respect.
In order to manage and minimise our environmental footprint, we adopted an environmental policy in 2009. The policy is aligned with the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development and reflects our support to the UN Global Compact’s environmental principles.
