The Environment

 
As a company with long term plans,
we take sustainability to heart

Our planet is becoming increasingly fragile. As the environment comes under threat, there are implications for the earth’s climate, sea levels, biodiversity, public health and global food supplies. Our society demands responsibility for preventing pollution at sea, and beyond this a contribution from shipping transport towards curbing greenhouse gases. Eletson’s goal is sustainability and we do everything we can in our everyday operation and planned development to ensure the environment does not suffer.

As one of the very first companies to anticipate modern environmental requirements, we pro-actively demanded double-hull vessels from an early stage. We now have more than 30 years’ experience in building, operating and maintaining such vessels.

All our operating procedures go beyond the standards set by international law and these have helped to encourage a distinctly environment-friendly mentality among our people. We have implemented management systems certified to ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 standards to embody and manage our commitment to quality and environmental protection.

Eletson’s goal of ’zero accidents and zero spills‘ is behind every single detail of our operations.

Making our living out of the sea,
we are at forefront of efforts to protect it.
