Sustainability in numbers

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

The indicators presented in this sustainability report are complementary to Stena’s annual report. All indicators are 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 vessels covered by the environmental indicators in the sustainability report are those that are controlled, leased or owned by Stena companies. These include several diverse types of vessels, from tankers and ferries to drillships. All of these vessels have 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.

The number of vessels included in the report has increased by two since the previous year. Despite this, fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions have decreased for the fleet as a whole. Emissions of sulphur into the air have been reduced by 15% as a result of the move to cleaner fuel.

All shipping companies in the Group have an annual fuel consumption reduction target of 2.5%. Consumption per vessel decreased by 2.8% between 2014 and 2015.

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, speed etc. Vessels that are leased to external customers are not included. With effect from 2014, LNG is included in fuel consumption and emissions. The year 2013 has therefore been recalculated.
2) For Stena Drilling’s units, distance sailed are not registered.

Decreased frequency of injuries

The graph shows the overall health and safety development within the Group in the form of an indexed value for Lost Time Incident Frequency (LTIF). Depending on the type of business, LTIF is measured differently. See "Safe operations at sea and ashore" for each of the business area’s LTIF development.

Reduced fuel consumption

Stena’s fleet is becoming increasingly efficient. In 2015, fuel consumption per nautical mile was 2.25% lower than in 2013.
