ForSea operates a sustainable ferry route and uses modern technology to reduce its environmental impact, while continuously working to strengthen the Øresund integration. ForSea is environmentally certified according to the ISO 14001: 2015 standard.
From 2007, the ferries on the route as the first in the world have lived up to the emission regulations from SECA, which became mandatory in 2015. In addition, the Group is continuously working to reduce CO2 emissions and the ferry operation’s impact on the marine environment for the benefit of the Øresund region. ForSea has initiated conversion to battery operation on the two ferries Tycho Brahe and Aurora in order to further reduce the environmental impact of the ferries.
ForSea and the ferry route also contribute to the local communities on both sides of the Sound through job creation and support for culture, education and business.
The journey across the Sound is also the journey towards zero emission
Sweden’s long-term climate target is to completely cease net greenhouse gas emissions in 2045. ForSea will achieve this goal by then.
“We only have one planet, and one of the things we, as a shipping company, can contribute to a sustainable world, is actively looking after the marine environment,” says Johan Röstin, CEO of ForSea. “We have always been environmentally conscious, and since 2007 we have lived up to the emission regulations that were introduced in 2015. With our battery-powered ferries, we take a huge step forward to ensure less emissions, smoke and noise. And we do not compromise on efficiency. Thanks to cutting-edge technology and our many talented employees, the crossover will also take 20 minutes, as before, with battery power. ”
