Description: The Swedish shipping industry has been very active in decarbonising shipping. Its industry
association has formulated a target of zero-carbon shipping by 2050 and various Swedish shipping
companies are pioneers in low-carbon shipping. The country now counts a number of innovative green
vessels projects. Stena Line runs a ferry on methanol; Sirius Shipping has developed a ship-to-ship LNG
bunkering vessel; numerous Swedish shipping companies - such as Terntank, Erik Thun and Rederi
Gotland – have pioneered services with LNG-propelled vessels; and both HH Ferries and Green City
Ferries have introduced electric ships.
This pro-active approach in Sweden is driven by an effective partnership of responsible shipping
companies and shippers. Most Swedish shipping companies are family owned, and most shipping
families are traditionally located in Donsö, a de facto maritime cluster that stimulates trust to cooperate
in developing green and innovative ships. The interest of Swedish ship-owners in sustainability and
innovation has been encouraged by large Swedish shippers, such as the energy company Preem, that are
dedicated to green supply chains. This has resulted in partnerships between shippers and shipping
companies that overcome barriers that have traditionally hampered progress in greening shipping. In
particular the willingness of certain shippers to commit to long-term charter contracts with the new lowcarbon
ships seems to have been a main determining factor.
