Protecting life below water


Our greatest resource is a shared resource, so we carefully manage our fleet of vessels to reduce their environmental impacts on the Ocean.

The ocean is one of the planet's most sustaining and majestic resources.

To us, protecting life below water means maintaining the ocean's biodiversity and safeguarding the ocean's ecosystems. Since our operations can pose threats to both, we embrace innovation to find new, novel solutions that decrease our impacts on life below water, while remaining vigilant in our compliance efforts.

  • Environmental emergency preparedness of ships
  • Environmental issues in ship recycling
