Minimising our Environmental Impact

Rapidly changing environmental frameworks call for action by all responsible parties. The first pillar in Monjasa’s responsibility framework, Minimising our environmental impact, is fundamental to understanding our role and supporting this global agenda.

To be able to improve our environmental impact, we must first understand the role we play in the ecosystems we take part in and gain an understanding of Monjasa’s global and local impact.

In total, three different initiatives fall under this pillar.

Managing environmental impact of our operations

To manage the environmental impact of our operations, we focus on two overall areas. First, we must gain an understanding of the role we play in the ecosystems we take part in and of Monjasa’s global and local impact. A CO2 emission baseline has already been established and we are now in the phase of issuing CO2 emissions reports to clients from well to wake.  Additionally, our future targets will be aligned with IMO, EU and other applicable regulatory targets.

Equally important, having zero oil spills from our operations continues to be our focus. To make sure Monjasa’s operations are prepared to manage a potential oil spill, we take an active approach to conducting drills in collaboration with our technical ship management company, Montec, and local maritime authorities in our main supply areas.

Mitigating our carbon footprint

Building further on the established CO2 emission baseline, we create transparency in how our operations impact our overall carbon footprint.

A key new action relating to mitigating our carbon footprint is the implementation of a sustainability management system in line with RED directives and the certification of Monjasa to ISCC.

We are also taking an active part in discussions on how the shipping industry can transition to future fuels.  

Consuming fewer resources

To consume fewer resources in Monjasa, we commit to delivering year-on-year improvements in onshore and offshore energy efficiency. We are currently at the stage of setting annual targets and measuring improvements in energy consumption.

We also implement energy efficiency improvements in our offices and in our fleet, e.g., printing less paper and retrofitting energy-saving devices.

Our Energy Management certificate (ISO 50001) is part of this process to be more aware of how we use our resources and thereby how we can improve.
