Grmaldi Grande HalifaxNAPLES: August 27, 2019. The Grimaldi Group has confirmed it will adhere to the Sustainable Actions for Innovative and Low-impact Shipping (Sails) charter.

This declaration allows companies operating in the sea transport sector to formalize and pursue their pioneering commitments to protect our planet and its people.

The initiative was launched last July by the French Ministry for Ecological and Inclusive Transition, with the support of Armateurs de France (France’s Shipping Association), 10 members of which have already signed the document.

The Grimaldi Group is the first Italian shipping company to have signed the charter to decrease of atmospheric pollutant and greenhouse gas emissions, the reduction of the underwater noise impact of ships, the optimization of ships energy performance, the fight against invasive species, and the protection of cetaceans.

“We have always deemed essential to promote and adopt good practices in maritime transport for the protection of the marine and coastal environment”, commented Gianluca Grimaldi, president of the Grimaldi Group. “This last initiative fits in and strengthens our group’s green commitment, which in recent years has translated in significant investments aimed at reducing harmful emissions from its operations,” he added.

Between 2020-2022 Grmaldi will take delivery of 12 state-of-the-art greenships. The new "Grimaldi Green 5th Generation" (GG5G) units will be the first examples of a new series of hybrid ro/ro vessels using fossil fuel during navigation and electricity while in port.

Green investments have involved not only the fleet but also terminals where solar panels and wind turbines will be installed. Moreover, the Grimaldi Group and its sister company Valencia Terminal Europa (VTE) have recently joined the European project “H2PORTS - Implementing Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Technologies in Ports”, whose main aim is to provide efficient solutions that will facilitate a rapid transition from a fossil fuel-based to a low- carbon, zero-emissions industry.
