ACTION INSTEAD OF WORDS

Environmental impact of the marine industry has become a major challenge for ship owners and ship builders. STX Europe's goal is to stand out as the leading company in green shipbuilding industry.


International and local authorities are focused on environmental issues and are continuously introducing stricter frameworks. In addition, ship owner associations are developing self-regulatory environmental policies.

Classification societies deliver environmental class notations to ships to ascertain and document that ships are designed, built, operated and maintained to provide an appropriate protection of the environment.

The number of environmentally sensitive areas is growing. Environmental accidents linked to marine industry are not only getting attention but also raising public debates. On top of that, fuel price and green taxes are boosting actions on energy efficiency.

Being green is not only good for the environment - it is also good for the business. STX Europe needs to be positioned as the leader, both ecologically and economically. Without one there is no other.

The facts listed above are practical matters, which call for actions in every stage of the ship's life cycle; cradle to grave. The actions are based on our Ecorizon strategy:
