Odfjell has won the 2021 GREEN4SEA Tanker Operator Award, which recognises companies that demonstrate outstanding performance in green and sustainable shipping.
The annual awards are organised by SAFETY4SEA, a shipping news outlet which includes websites and magazines dedicated to fostering sustainable shipping. The Tanker Operator Award is ‘to be awarded to any ship operator of oil or chemical tankers or gas carriers that demonstrated environmental excellence and performance above average in any aspect of maritime activity.
Odfjell was nominated alongside Stena Bulk, Synergy Marine Group, Thome Group and BW LPG. Odfjell CEO Kristian Mørch accepted the award in a digital award ceremony on 21 April 2021.
‘We are very happy to be awarded GREEN4SEA’s Tanker Operator Award, and we are especially pleased because it is based on a recognition of our sustainability efforts. We are proud of the results we have delivered so far, and I accept this award on behalf of the entire Odfjell organisation on board our ships, at our terminals and in our offices worldwide. It is a true team effort to secure safe operations at sea and ashore, and also to find new and more sustainable solutions,’ says Mørch.
“We have come a long way already, but we also know that we have big challenges ahead of us to achieve our target of becoming climate neutral by 2050. We greatly appreciate the recognition GREEN4SEA shows for our work by nominating us, and the endorsement shown by everyone who voted for us.’
