Getting greener while sustaining ethical growth and opportunites.


Our priorities

Every aspect of sustainability needs attention, but some are more
relevant to us and our stakeholders than others.

Environmental, Social and Governance

Solstad assesses environmental, social and corporate governance issues in its business decisions, operation and financial reporting.

Solstad’s governance and management systems are based on the Company’s vision and values.

* Baseline for the efficiency target is an average of each vessel’s performance over the past 3 years. The increased performance comes from operational measures (Solstad Green Operations) and/or technical upgrades such as battery and/or shore power systems. The increase total emissions for Q2 is related to increased activity including more vessels in operation.

A thorough materiality analysis has provided us with way to focus our efforts by highlighting the most crucial elements of what sustainability means to both Solstad and our customers, investors, employees and neighbours.

Zero Emissions

As a major player in the offshore energy industry, we’re acutely aware of the predicaments that face us as a global society and our role in both creating and solving them. We know that the Earth is getting warmer, and we took considerable environmental measures through the Solstad Green Operations program long before it was cool.

Zero Incidents

Solstad Incident Free Operations is a companywide working culture whereby all operations are planned and executed in the belief that all incidents, whatever the nature or cause, are preventable. 

We are all one team and responsible for the safety of ourselves and of each other. We reject the idea that ‘accidents happen’

We strive to maintain this safety mindset in every facet of our operations that ensures we:

  • Look Out for Each Other
  • Understand and actively manage the risks in every task
  • Choose to follow the safety rules speak up and stop any task that is deemed to be unsafe

Zero Tolerance

We know that big business decisions are sometimes made based on other things than competence and ability, which is why we have an absolute zero tolerance policy on corruption and bribery. We aim to provide steady, fulfilling work for people in the communities we touch. That’s why we employ local seafarers and land-based staff in our different markets, and why we protect whistleblowers.
