Sustainability

We believe in
a greener future

Climate change

The worldwide focus on climate issues is accelerating at a fast pace. According to IMO, shipping accounts for 90% of the world trade, and as such the industry has a huge impact on the environment and climate. Via IMO we are committed to reduce our emissions with 40% per cargo tons-mile by 2030 compared to 2008 levels. Globally, the focus on emissions reductions is increasing day-by-day and we have to continue to innovate, collect and analyse data, invest in equipment and systems as well as raise general awareness both onshore and at sea.

Decarbonisation strategy

The Ultranav group have outlined a decarbonisation strategy built on 8 pillars. The goal is to play an active role in exceeding IMO’s mandatory targets of reducing CO2 intensity by at least 40% until 2030 and total GHG emissions by 50% until 2050.

Within each of these 8 pillars, Ultranav has identified a list of projects and initiatives, existing as well as new ones, to be further pursued in the effort to support the sustainability agenda. Taking on the climate challenge is not all about regulations and restrictions. It also offers a variety of opportunities for us as a group as well as for the shipping industry and society at large.

The 8 pillars are:

01

Energy efficiency

Ultranav believes that there is untapped potential in realizing additional improvements through the implementation of various existing and new technologies

02

Partnerships

Achieving the global climate goals requires a cross-industry cooperation between all stakeholders

03

New technology

Ultranav believes that zero emission shipping is driven by the uptake of carbon-free fuels

04

Shared responsibility with our customers

Ultranav believes that net-zero shipping needs an integral industry-wide solution

05

Education and awareness

Inclusion of all stakeholders on the decarbonization challenges is essential to effectively achieve our common goals

06

Transparent and accurate reporting

Transparent and accurate reporting of emissions and efficiencies is a key element to commitment

07

Regulations

Ultranav supports a carbon levy or similar regulatory incentives that promotes the decarbonization of shipping on a level playing field

08

Carbon credits

Ultranav believes that offsetting of emissions can work as a catalyst in the transition to a permanent carbon-free solution

Safety first

As one of the Ultranav corporate values, safety takes a significant part of daily operations. All our crews around the world are part of the UltraSafe programme, designed specifically to anchor safety within our culture. The goal has been to design a global program with shared safety processes, behaviors, tools and methods, but also allowing each company to carry out the necessary local adjustments. The aim is to create a safety culture everyone trusts; resilient and strong. The key is to trust in each other’s commitment and accountability, while contributing with passion and integrity.

UltraSafe Programme

This program has been implemented over the past years in all Ultranav’s business units with special focus on all shipmanagement activities and it has implicated changes in our procedures, measurements and goals both at sea and ashore. With the implementation of Safety Delta, we made listening to our crews the starting point of our drive towards safer operations.
