Carbon reduction initiatives.
By using the 'holistic approach to fender system design', the SFT Group and our experienced team of engineers design fender systems with an extended life cycle and a lower rate of early refurbishments. This is what we call a 'green design' approach. We show the durability and reliability of our solutions, leading to a more sustainable maritime industry.
The highest impact of our carbon reduction initiatives, is with the components of a fender system and their manufacturing method. The SFT Group offers various alternatives to regular components which offer the same high quality but ensure a lower carbon footprint.
Shipment and transport of our fender systems and components - from place of manufacturing to place of installation - goes a sustainable and resource-efficient way. The SFT Group works with carriers and shipping companies which operate on green fuels to decarbonize ocean logistics and to support our clients to reduce their carbon footprint.
Maintenance is an underestimated but valuable sustainable factor. Well maintained fenders will increase operational lifetime and reduce potential accidents - both adding to the SFT Group's goal to avoid wasting resources. In addition, refurbishment of fenders is part of our sustainable services.
