Sustainability for Stena

A Global Business with focus on Sustainability

The Stena Group contributes to value creation and social development in various ways by offering safe homes in the Group’s properties, generating electricity from wind power, providing maritime transportation of goods, vehicles and passengers; and building strong companies that can be platforms for new business areas. All this activity creates jobs for thousands of people around the world.

Operations are divided into several business areas, which both ­individually and together drive the Group’s sustainability work. ­Stena’s business model is based on using the Group’s collective expertise, particularly in service, trading and ships, to conduct operations in the business areas: Shipping, Ferry Operations, ­Offshore, Property and New Businesses. The business areas are different and each company has its own more developed business model.
