Embedding sustainability at the core of chartering
The shipping industry is highly concerned with today’s pressing sustainability issues. We have never seen so many initiatives, so many promises. But even though these concerns are receiving increased attention, our industry is still not contributing as much as we could to relieve the climate crisis.
Fuel-heavy, polluting vessels and overcapacity still dominate our industry. When it comes to chartering specifically, current systems and processes fail to make environmental impact a criterion in everyday decision-making.
For us at Vanora, there has always been a missing link: sustainability assessment of vessels has not been a natural and integrated part of the chartering process.
Sustainability has therefore largely rested on individual companies – or even individual employees – that are willing to go the extra mile to make sure their vessels are up to the highest environmental standards. And still, availability of objective, comparable data on the environmental performance of vessels is not commonplace.
Vanora is attacking this issue head-on to make sustainability a key selection criterion for vessels, enabling charterers to make decisions in line with their sustainability policies – and to document that they are following through.
We are here to help you follow through on sustainability by enabling documented, green choices. What does this mean in practice? Running a chartering process through the Vanora portal means that you can tailor a tender to your needs based on technical, commercial and environmental criteria, and define the weighting of each of them.
In terms of sustainability, Vanora now enables you to:
- Choose vessels based on type of fuel and fuel consumption.
- Choose vessels with the lowest emissions.
- Monitor sustainability performance
- Generate comprehensive data exports for your ESG reporting.
This means that we make it easy for you to visualize the greener choices. Thanks to our standardized evaluation of fuel type, fuel consumption and emissions, the information you need is readily available, reliable and comparable. You can even rule out vessels that do not match your sustainability standards, and only receive bids from best-in-class vessels.
In our platform, you get everything you need to make a responsible choice and help your company reach its sustainability goals.
