Hafnia recognises that the ocean is a precious resource, supporting life around the world and enabling us to conduct our operations. As such, it is imperative that we treat it and the ecosystems within it with the utmost respect. We are serious about protecting our seas.
Hafnia has a zero-oil spill history
We are proud to be in strict compliance with the relevant global regulations, such as the Oil Pollution to Sea, Chemical Pollution to Sea, Sewage Pollution to Sea, Garbage Pollution to Sea, as well as Ballast Water Management Convention.
While ballast water is essential for safe and efficient modern shipping operations, it may pose serious ecological, economic and health problems due to the multitude of marine species carried in ships’ ballast water. The Convention’s aim is to prevent, minimise and ultimately eliminate the transfer of harmful aquatic organisms and pathogens via shipping, through the control and management of ships’ ballast water and sediments.
Hafnia has been proactive in ensuring that vessels are fitted with Approved Ballast Water Treatment Systems. As of the end of 2021, 78.2 % of our fleet was implemented with ballast water treatment systems.
Hafnia is committed to integrating sustainable technologies and environmental strategies across the entirety of its operations. The illustration on the next page gives an overview of the scope of this activity.
