Quarterly environmental statements

Our environmental management solution is based on a digital platform, covering energy and waste management of vessel fleet, truck fleet, terminal assets, warehouses, and office space. In the statement below the data is collected from Eimskip Iceland, Faroe Ship, and Eimskip Norway shipping department.

We are proud of the progress we have achieved in environmental matters but we still want to improve by publishing environmental updates on a quarterly basis for better monitoring starting from Q1 2020.
