Here we present Stena’s sustainability efforts in numbers, in the form of a range of economic, environmental and social indicators.

Karlskrona, Sweden, seen from the Stena Line terminal at Verkö.

The indicators presented in this sustainability report are complementary to Stena’s annual report. All indicators are currently reported at an aggregate level for the entire Group and provide an overview of the Group’s development financially, environmentally and in terms of personnel. The financial and social indicators are taken from the annual report.

The Stena Group’s fleet of tankers, ferries and drillships are the basis for the environmental indicators. The fleet, which has grown by 12% since 2012, is controlled, leased or owned by Stena companies. It includes many diverse vessel types with different trading patterns, making it difficult to obtain accurate comparative figures. For this reason, the environmental indicators are reported in absolute figures for the total fleet.

Fuel consumption for the full fleet in 2014 increased by 3% in absolute figures as a result of an increased fleet, freight volumes and distance sailed. At the same time, fuel efficiency improved by 14.7%, measured in tonnes/kilometre, and by 2.2%, measured in tonnes/­nautical mile. This indicates that the whole fleet has become more efficient.

1) Refers to Ferry Lines, Offshore drilling and Shipping. The vessels in this report have been limited to those for which Stena has operational control over fuel purchasing, routing speed etc. Vessels that are leased to external customers are not included. With effect from this report, LNG is included in fuel consumption and emissions. The years 2012–2013 have therefore been recalculated compared with last years sustainability report.
2) For Stena Drilling’s units, distance sailed are not registered.
