OUR SUSTAINABLE JOURNEY CONTINUES

Stena Line is on a journey to become a more sustainable company. Our sustainability strategy is divided into four focus areas developed in line with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. In April we will share our full sustainability overview but here are some of the highlights from 2017.

CLEAN ENERGY

In October we inaugurated a shore power connection in the Port of Trelleborg and we now have 13 vessels connected to green electricity whilst in port and our aim is to connect another one this year. 

In 2017 we converted the last main engine on Stena Germanica and she can now run on methanol as well as diesel. At the moment both of them are part of the fuel mix.

Our Energy Saving Program completed
their three hundred project – an important part of our ambition to save energy and to achieve the target of reducing emissions of CO2 by 2.5 % yearly. 

RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION

We sell approximately one million carrier bags in our shops onboard yearly and we have tried several alternatives. We have now chosen a recyclable bio-plastic bag made from sugarcane. We have also introduced a paper bag.

We aim to phase out plastic disposables on board and we continuously test several biodegradable alternatives of mugs, cutlery and food boxes. 

To guarantee a responsible consumption we have launched new supplier standards that will be implemented during 2018. 

LIFE BELOW WATER

To protect life below water we have a zero vision for oil and fuel spills and this year we did not manage to reach that vision. 

Following a mapping of detergents used for on board cleaning we managed to double the use of Eco-label detergents last year. 

We have installed three ‘closed loop Scrubbers’ on our vessels and this makes it possible to clean most of the Sulphur dioxide from the emissions of our vessels both to air and sea. 

GOOD HEALTH & WELL BEING

Safety always comes first at Stena Line and that includes both our staff and our customers. Therefore we are happy that our safety target LTIF dropped significantly last year. 

Health & well-being goes hand in hand and by supporting several sports events and activities around the business we encourage our people to enjoy physical activity. 

During autumn Stena Lines employees and guests donated money during a coffee cup campaign. The donations were equivalent to running an operating room for two weeks onboard Mercy Ships hospital ships.

SEASONAL RECRUITS PRACTICE EVACUATION DRILLS

You have two jobs onboard, the first one is your role in the safety organisation and the second your regular work tasks. This is the foundation of what over 400 seasonal recruits are being taught at Öckerö Martime Center in the Gothenburg archipelago, West Sweden, during the spring. Stena Line has placed a real evacuation system here that releases into the water – the only one in Northern Europe.

STENA LINE OPENS NEW ROUTE TO FINLAND

In recent months, Stena Line has heavily focused on expanding in the Baltic Sea. With its newest route, the ferry operator literally breaks new ground, and closes a gap at the same time. Stena Line’s first ever ferry route to mainland Finland makes up for the now densest route network in Northern Europe, reaching from the Irish Sea to the utmost east of the continent. The opening is also a testament of Stena Line’s approach to act dynamically and consequently, when the customers’ demand is there.

EXPANSION CONTINUES

Over the past year, Stena Line has expanded in the Baltic Sea, increasing both freight and passenger capacity, to cater for increasing demand of sea transportation in the region. This year Stena Line has already introduced new large and modern ferries on both of their two Latvian routes Nynäshamn-Ventspils and Travemünde-Liepaja. The ferry company has announced that the expansion on the Baltic Sea will continue during 2022, increasing both freight- and passenger capacity. The company has announced that they will deploy their two new 240-meter-long fuel-efficient E-Flexer ferries, on the Nynäshamn-Ventspils next year. Stena Line has also announced plans to increase the capacity on the Karlskrona-Gdynia route with the deployment of the two large and modern ferries Stena Scandica and Stena Baltica.
