Sustainability

Unifeeder is committed to maintaining and improving a safe and sustainable business for the benefit of customers, owners, employees, the environment and society at large. Unifeeder has formulated clear policies that serve as guidelines for both employees and business partners.

Unifeeder as a vessel operator
On the high seas and in ports there are always health, safety and environmental risks. Unifeeder has formulated clear Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE) policies that address these risks. The policies reflect Unifeeder’s aim to provide stringent health and safety information throughout the organization as well as to partners in the transport industries.

We charter all our vessels, which have to meet the highest standards of safety and classification. The chartering of newer and larger vessels is yielding lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions per transported unit.

Onboard, environmental precautions include zinc-free, antifouling paint below the waterline, no storage of fuel in the double bottoms, advanced waste treatment and waste separation systems. Sludge- and waste-handling agreements are in force for all Unifeeder vessels in all ports. All vessels in Unifeeder service are governed by the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS).

We only charter vessels whose owners have entered into collective agreements with the international Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF). The ITF has a number of collective agreements with seafarers which ensure salary levels and working conditions

Unifeeder as a business partner

Every manager and sales person has signed a confirmation letter that he/she understands, and will observe and act according to the rules and guidelines in our compliance manual.
