Green Initiative

We take our responsibility to the environment seriously.

At Seatrek, we strive to do everything commercially possible to be good stewards of the air and sea we trek. Our focus is on actively participating in constant improvement in eco-friendliness and sustainability.

The term Green Shipping varies widely; no single definition currently exists. As international shipping, and the pollution it brings, increases on a yearly basis, SeaTrek is committed to be a leading green shipping company inside the context of our innovative business strategies.

At Seatrek we have a long-term focus on a greener and more sustainable shipping industry — and recognize that focus begins with us. 
SeaTrek is committed to eco-friendly best practices in the running and maintenance of its fleet.
Many of our ships have newer fuel-efficient engines to save fuel and burn cleaner and our ships' average age is less than 10 years old.
Our engine rooms are kept at the highest standards and engine oils are changed on schedule and properly disposed of when dirty. 
Our black and grey waste water is properly treated and our ballast water changing complies with international standards. 
In short, we take no short cuts in having our vessels leaving the smallest footprint achievable.
 Seatrek has acquired some eco-type ships that are built for operational efficiency, flexibility and lower fuel consumption, making them significantly more environmentally friendly. We are evaluating the newest eco-vessels with new engine technology that works within the Regulation 13 of MARPOL Annex VI guidelines of Tier II/III amendments for NOx.

IMO 2020 Compliant

The biggest marine polluter today is the exhaust from the ships’ engines. SeaTrek has a fuel plan in place so that all SeaTrek’s vessels will be IMO 2020 compliant with 0.5% or less sulphur emissions. We actively study and research new fuel blends and the bunker fuel industry, always looking for fuels that can not only lower sulphur but can reduce CO2, NOx, methane and other polluting particulates. There are many choices for ship owners wishing to stay compliant, we are committed to evaluating all fuel choices always use the least pollutive fuel available.

A Sustainable Future

It is critical that the shipping industry goes green. The IMO2020 initiative reduces sulphur emissions significantly, a big step for an industry that has been slow to adopt environmental change. Reaching 0.1 % or less sulphur is possible and must be mandated. The IMO predicted that unless there is a major effort to reduce pollution, CO2 emissions from shipping would increase 250 percent by 2050, as the world depends more and more on global trade. Due to this prediction, in April 2018, the 174 member states of IMO adopted a new strategy to phase out greenhouse gases from shipping with targets to halve carbon emissions in shipping by 2050. This is a step in the right direction, but why only half? That’s 30 years away, why can’t we work for zero emissions? Carbon free shipping, why not? The shipping and the scientific communities’ have the talent and the resources. There needs to be a sense of urgency in reducing shipping’s pollution to sustainable levels for the future of the planet.

There are over 70,000 ships on the water and many of them are old. Newer green ships with engines and new fuels - even sails will be on the seas in the future but true sustainability will not occur until if the old ships are not properly recycled. Green ship recycling is needed to prevent polluting our waters and losing the retired ships’ materials that can be recycled. Shipwrecks must also be addressed in a global ship recycling plan.
