No oil spills
The largest environmental risk associated with tanker shipping is the risk of an oil spill in connection with a grounding, collision or other accident. With the increasing modernisation and safety of the global tanker fleet, the number of oil spills has declined significantly.
This trend is due to a combination of comprehensive improvement work on the part of the world’s shipping companies and tougher requirements from regulators, customers and other stakeholders.
Strict reporting procedures enable total control over all incidents – in port and at sea. 2020 was another year in which none of Concordia Maritime’s vessels were involved in any incident that resulted in bunker oil or cargo discharging into the water.
