Sustainable solutions

In 2020, Stolt Tank Containers (STC) set a goal to reduce the carbon footprint we generate from using our logistics partners' services by 40% over the next ten years.

To support this aim, we signed up to Clean Cargo, a sustainability leadership initiative dedicated to mitigating the environmental impact of global goods transportation and promoting responsible shipping.

STC is also aiming to use 50% renewable energy at our wholly owned depots by 2030 and we are exploring new green technologies and processes across all our operations. For example, we are partnering with Shell in China to trial LNG trucks; we are testing hydrogen-powered forklift trucks and bio-fuelled boilers in Singapore; and we are reconfiguring our depot floorplans to reduce overall fuel use through more efficient container movements.
