“To put facts into frame, we can say we live in an era where shipowners are called to tackle the environmental issue like never before. Fortunately, the demand for change from worldwide public opinion has been reciprocated by responsible operators.
The task is enormous, especially in a very capital-intensive industry such as shipping.”
“Knowing the trend and understanding well that after crisis people will look for a new normal, not for the old one, responsible shipowners are studying the changes and doing their homework for a turnaround. Launching cleaner and less consuming transportations is also a way for shipowner to abate energy costs, so it makes perfectly sense also under an economical point of view.”
“At Grimaldi we decided to abide to these facts, and despite the Covid emergency, we had two years of intense environmental work in our group. We believe this way to position ourselves, in environmental field, on the front line of our shipping category, taking onboard the best technologies available to set new environmental standards in our sector, developing technologies as frontrunners, to the benefit and heritage of the whole community.
A concrete witnessing of the effort paid by our Group is surfacing in public debate. For instance, Ferry Shipping Summit awarded our GG5G series as Ro-Ro of the year 2021.”
