As part of the Maritime Sector, it is our responsibility to do our part in the reduction of emissions in the maritime industry, aiming to reach net-zero by 2050. Therefore, S5 is committed to playing our part in the decarbonization of the maritime sector. We continue our sustainability journey through the 2-way environmental strategy: encompassing both our own footprint reduction and supporting our clients and suppliers in reaching their sustainability goals.

Our main focus and commitment lie with what we identified as the most important ESG factors:
