Ocean transportation is a vital and integral part of the global economy with around 90% of all traded goods being carried over the waves.


As part of an industry which impacts so many areas of the world, we believe that responsible business conduct is an essential part of delivering quality maritime transportation services. Responsibility and accountability are therefore both values which are an integral part of our corporate strategy. Lauritzen Bulkers is committed to enabling global trade through providing intelligent ocean transport services, while simultaneously- giving back to the environment and supporting the growth and development of local communities around the world.

Our dedication to act responsibly and remain accountable

Our corporate responsibility policy builds on our core values and on internationally recognised principles such as the UN Global Compact’s ten principles for responsible business conduct and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.


We are dedicated to continuously improving our sustainability efforts and actively do so by investing in and implementing ongoing improvements in technology and maximizing efficiencies within our own operations. Lauritzen Bulkers is committed to supporting global efforts focused on accelerating the maritime shipping industry's decarbonization by 2050.
