One of our F-class vessels recently completed Wagenborg’s first Transatlantic voyage sailing on co-processed marine fuel. This shipment – requested by one of our customers – illustrated the ease to switch to this type of a drop-in bio fuel, resulting in a 68% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions on this specific voyage.
Metsä Group and the Dutch shipping company Royal Wagenborg have agreed to cooperate in reducing the climate impact of maritime transport. The goal is to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in sea transport of Metsä Group products by 30 percent per ton/mile by 2030 when compared to 2021.
Our suppliers play an integral part in our mission to make our business more sustainable every day. At Royal Wagenborg we believe that it is a joint responsibility together with our suppliers to develop and offer services in a responsible and sustainable manner. We expect all of our suppliers to support us on this sustainability journey.
After a few weeks of maintenance, the MV Medemborg has been taken into service again after her fifth class renewal. After this refit in Liepaja, the 9.000 DWT M-type vessel was put back into operations for many more years of reliable service.
Royal Wagenborg has published its 2021 Sustainability Report, a detailed report on how it integrates sustainability into its business and own operations. In 2021 Royal Wagenborg made significant progress in improving her approach to Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) issues and in evolving our business to respond to the changes required in the ongoing energy transition.
As sustainability is of strategic and vital importance to Wagenborg, we clearly target our ambitions and intensively track progress against these targets. This report covers our social, safety and environmental performance and progress in 2020.
In the last two weeks, the m.v. Warnowborg was docked. During this docking period various ‘green updates’ were made to this geared 8.600 DWCC multipurpose vessel. Thanks to a great effort of the Wagenborg crew, technical shore support and the shipyard, the Warnowborg is ready for the upcoming years of services.
