Our Commitment

“Stolt Tank Containers has already made great strides towards more environmentally-friendly tank container shipping through the way our cleaning and maintenance depots are operated. They run on renewable energy and recycled wastewater, with their own solar panels and wastewater treatment facilities.

But depots are only a small part of the story. Most carbon emissions generated through tank container shipping come from the transport itself – the services we have to buy in from vendors. This is where much of the difference can be made, and I’m making it my business to find solutions.”
