ENVIRONMENTAL CARE IS PART OF OUR HISTORY

Since our inception, our efforts have focused on growing sustainably. This is why we have pioneered green initiatives in the international maritime sector. Today, we continue promoting opportunities that help to take care of oceans and the environment to sail together towards a better future. We share with you below some of our featured projects and our sustainable journey. Join us!

Our sea adventure began!

In 1974, we set sail for our first destination with the commitment to be eco-efficient.

We were committed to sustainable route

We started with the aim of linking the islands through their nearest ports to reduce the impact on the sea.

We expanded our horizons while caring for the environment

In 1989, we increased our connections and fleet, maintaining our commitment to efficiency.

We turned our eyes into binoculars!

Since 1995, we have been conducting cetacean sightings on board for study and preservation purposes.

We opted for Fast Ferries for the Canary Islands!

Thanks to them, we could activate new sustainability projects while making voyages shorter.

We started looking for better fuel

We switched to Marine Gas Oil (MGO), which is low in sulphur and has a smaller environmental footprint.

We Eco-designed new routes

We redesigned part of our routes to reduce transit in areas inhabited by marine fauna.

We appointed more keepers

We appointed more keepers to watch out for marine fauna and care for our unique biodiversity.

Brush and paint!

We coated our fleet with fluoropolymers, reducing water resistance and non-renewable resources consumption.

Science in sight!

We partnered with Universities to promote environmental research and... we are still on! (CetaVist (ULL), CanBio (ULPGC), ...)

We raised the standard of travel

We launched the first trimaran in the Canary Islands, which brought a greener horizon to the islands.

We turned down the volume

We connected a ship to external electricity for the first time in a port. A big step for acoustics in cities.

We said goodbye to boarding passes!

Thanks to this, we managed to reduce 16 tons of CO2/year. Today, you only need your ID documents to travel.

Hello, Zero Paper!

We found it so easy to say goodbye to paper in boardings, that we applied it to the whole company, reducing 4 tons of CO2 and 50,000 l of water/year.

We dreamed to innovate...

We devised the world's first dual engine Ropax Fast Ferry prototype, capable of sailing on Liquefied Natural Gas.

We registered our carbon footprint

We did it by being certified by the Ministry for Ecological Transition, with the aim of measuring our footprint & to reduce it.

We accelerated towards eco-efficiency

We turned to cutting-edge marine engineering to expand the fleet with more trimarans that are also more sustainable.

We reduced emissions on long distance

Together with Baleària, we opted for LNG fuel, achieving a -30% CO2 reduction on our route to Huelva.

We eliminated plastics on board

We replaced them with biodegradable items, reducing up to 6.2 tons/year of plastic.

We dove into the sea to protect its inhabitants

Together with ULL, we embarked on a project to protect marine fauna.

We redesigned our routes

We further reduced voyage miles that went through Special Areas of Conservation (SAC).

We got ISO 14001-certified

Ensuring that we correctly prioritise environmental risks and opportunities.

We implemented waste sorting

A step taken across all our facilities in order to encourage and facilitate recycling for clients and employees.

More trimarans, greater efficiency

We have added the latest generation trimarans to our fleet, with more fuel-efficient engines.

Big Data is here!

We are implementing new navigation systems, which provide real-time data on consumption and efficiency to the crew.

We help to take care of our flora:

We are collaborating with local protection initiatives such as Fenix or the 'Viera y Clavijo' Canarian Botanical Garden.

We raise awareness among our employees

We are launching internal awareness campaigns to promote safe environmental practices.

2030

We continue to promote initiatives that help us grow in line with the Sustainable Development 2030 agenda
