Stolt Tank Containers pursues the highest standards in quality, safety and sustainability. Our sustainable innovations are implemented through staff training and compliance with a broad range of policies and regulations, ensuring positive outcomes for people and the planet, while providing the best service to customers.

Our focus on building a sustainable business will keep our momentum going across the board, while placing extra effort on environment-related matters where we have the most room for improvement. We are currently developing a more structured way of measuring our carbon footprint. This will include measuring water, electricity, gas/petrol and steam consumption, waste management and employee commutes. Within the supply chain, we’ll be looking at emissions produced by downstream transport and distribution of our tank containers via third-party trucks, barges, carriers, etc.

We are committed to operating in a sustainable manner by focusing on the following fundamentals to drive us forward:

• Providing the easiest, fastest and most flexible customer experience
• Abiding by our commitment to safety of zero harm
• Attracting and retaining high quality, motivated people and developing jobs into careers for all our staff
• Fostering a culture of innovation that sets us apart from the competition and which we constantly strive to improve
• Constantly reinvest in our businesses, assets and people for long-term growth
• Continuously pursue the reduction of the environmental impact of our businesses
• Continually developing initiatives that will ensure the long-term future of STC and the environment in which we operate.
