Baleària joins Green Marine Europe

August 29, 2023

Baleària is the first Spanish shipping company participating in Green Marine Europe environmental certification program. It is the leading shipping group in Spain, with 25 years of history in the maritime transport of passengers, vehicles and goods.

The shipping company is a global benchmark for sustainability thanks to its pioneering commitment to eco-efficient mobility. 

Baleària is deploying a range of solutions, all dedicated to the energy transition of its business. Grouped under the slogan "Green Course", its solutions are based on variety and innovation: energy mix, tools for managing fuel consumption and analysing ship itineraries and manoeuvres, as well as the condition of hulls, propellers and engines, to optimise navigation and therefore have less impact on the environment, feasibility studies for certifiable carbon offsetting projects in posidonia meadows and Spanish marshes, sustainable finance with its participation in the Poseidon Principles, circular economy and recycling, etc. Its aim is to achieve zero-emission shipping by 2050.

Innovation is the key to the company's identity and leadership. Baleària is developing projects that place digitisation and technology at the service of the customer: it has a fleet of smart ships that offer a fuller and more personalised experience, exploiting the capabilities of big data to become a data-driven company, among other initiatives.

Baleària is a local shipping company with an international vocation, employing more than 1,800 people, on the shore and in the fleet. The company’s impact also extends through the Baleària Foundation, through which it organises and encourages social, cultural and environmental actions with the aim of promoting the development of the regions it links and improving the well-being of their inhabitants.
