Stena Bulk joins call for shipping decarbonisation
Among the shipping company’s aims include exploring low carbon fuels and the feasibility of using carbon capture to cut emissions further.
Stena also aims to have all of its new builds carbon neutral-ready by 2030 and having zero-emission vessels on the water before 2035.
The company will also perform three trials of sustainable 2nd and 3rd generation biofuels - offering it to our customers as an option on individual voyages and across our full fleet.
Erik Hånell, President and CEO, Stena Bulk, said: “Today, Stena Bulk has joined other industry leaders in a worldwide call to action for shipping decarbonisation ahead of COP26, where shipping will be included in global climate discussions for the first time.
“We believe it is vital to join other voices and show that shipping is seriously committed to decarbonisation. Together, our community can speak with a united voice in favour of sustainability innovation.
“Stena Bulk is proud to constantly push sustainability boundaries, as this allows us to be ahead of the curve when it comes to green technological research and development.
“Global Maritime Forum’s Call to Action is fully aligned with our own sustainability ambitions and objectives, and is a natural initiative for us to be involved in.
As part of our participation in this call to action, Stena Bulk has committed to specific targets and deadlines that have been approved by the Global Maritime Forum and outlined in the Call to Action document.
“Stena Bulk has always supported the idea that shipping needs to embrace more partnership and collaboration to tackle the industry’s biggest challenges, that is why we remain committed to developing ambitious partnerships and evaluating technologies and fuels through a range of pilot projects.”
