Sustainable future

Stolt Tank Containers believes in helping create a sustainable future and that it makes good long-term sense for any responsible global company to evaluate its business in terms of its commitment to its employees, business growth and performance as well as its ongoing impact on the environment both now and in the future.

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.”

Our sustainability strategy and governance

As an organisation that plays an essential part in the global supply chain, transporting and storing products that touch every aspect of modern life, we recognise the impact that our operations have on the environment, our colleagues and wider society. Sustainability is therefore integral to our strategy, underpins operations across Stolt Tank Containers.
