ESL Shipping publishes 2018 Sustainability Report

Published by , Assistant Editor
Dry Bulk,

ESL Shipping has published its Sustainability Report 2018. The year was transformational for the company. The company’s climate-smart newbuildings debuted spectacularly by sailing to the Baltic Sea via Northeast Passage and ESL completed the acquisition of AtoB@C Shipping.

"Five years ago we set revolutionary emission reduction targets for our newbuildings. Our comprehensive energy-saving approach, combined with the latest technology, resulted in 50 % saving in CO2 emissions. I am proud to say we are real front-runners and are re-shaping the shipping industry together with our clients", commented Managing Director Mikki Koskinen on the successful year.

To underline the practical sustainability work onboard and the company’s expertise in Arctic conditions, this year's report is built around the log book from Haaga's maiden voyage from Japan to Sweden via Northeast Passage. The full log book from the voyage will be published on the company’s website during the spring.
