The Company has published its 2022 ESG report which can be found below along with the prior year reports. The Company invites you to read the 2022 ESG report and welcomes any comments or questions you may have on the information presented.
The Company believes its sustainability strategy is the key to balancing the interests and expectations of all its stakeholders, including investors, analysts, employees, customers, suppliers, and communities, and ultimately creating long-term value.
Expanding and modernizing its fleet remains a key part of the Company’s strategy, and the Company is committed to an investment program towards vessel acquisitions, newbuildings and retrofits, which can be powered by low or zero carbon fuel solutions. This is demonstrated by the delivery of six state-of-the-art ammonia- ready VLCC newbuildings in 2022 and January 2023. The Company’s fleet consists of 91% Eco vessels and has an average age of six years, making it one of the youngest and most energy-efficient fleets in the industry. Despite turbulent European conditions, increased demand and high speeds throughout the market, the Company’s modern and efficient fleet was able to maintain its emission intensity in 2022 and outperformed the IMO and Poseidon Principles emission trajectories by 16.3% and 13.6%, respectively.
The Company is proud of the achievements its strategy has delivered in 2022, as detailed in the 2022 ESG report, and looks forward to the challenges ahead.
