INCREASED FOCUS ON
EQUALITY AND INCLUSION
Stena Line has launched a new sustainability focus area – Equality and inclusion. This is part of the company’s increased commitment to creating a sustainable working environment and an important step on the journey towards becoming a leader in sustainable shipping.
Stena Line is committed to maintaining and developing a sustainable working environment, free from harassment, where everyone is given equal opportunities regardless of age, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity or disability.
“At Stena Line we welcome everyone, whether you want to work here, travel with us or be one of our business partners. I am proud to announce that we are increasing our focus on this important matter by adding another focus area to our sustainability strategy, says Erik Lewenhaupt, Head of Sustainability, Brand and Communication, Stena Line.
For Equality and inclusion, the long-term goals are set to a minimum of 30 per cent female leaders by 2022 and a zero-vision in terms of harassment. The work has already started with two new company policies for anti-harassment and equal opportunities launched last year. In 2018 Stena Line also signed the Maritime UK’s “Women in Maritime pledge” committing to “building an employment culture that actively supports and celebrates gender diversity, at all levels, throughout our organisation, and our industry”.
