ShibataFenderTeam Leads the Way in Transparent Carbon Footprint Assessment

In the maritime industry, manufacturers had been vague about specific CO2 emissions related to individual orders. Many notable initiatives have been put in place but the connection between these and actual carbon footprint reduction remains ambiguous, and no manufacturer has been able to present a clear number to their customers. Until now.

Placing the focus on customers that have been left uninformed about the environmental impact of their purchases, the ShibataFenderTeam Group teamed up with the independent consultancy company Ramboll to jointly develop an exclusive assessment tool that provides Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions per individual order.

The new tool is based on ISO 14037:2018 and the analysis provided is built upon three pillars: sourcing, manufacturing and distribution (cradle-to-gate) of the ordered product. The resulting emission factor considers the product components, the energy consumption and transport of the raw material, delivering a clear feedback to clients that are now aware of the extent of CO2 emissions associated with their order, and more importantly, how they might reduce those emissions. SFT offers a “green solution” to their established products, with various alternative components (such as bluemint® steel by Thyssenkrupp, post-industry plastics and recycled carbon black) which offer the same high quality but ensure less GHG emissions; and our clients can immediately see their CO2 savings.

Breaking away from the norm, we stand as pioneers in the industry, becoming the first to provide tangible, product specific numbers on CO2 emissions for individual orders. This innovative approach does more than just inform — it empowers clients to make informed and more sustainable decisions.

"Transparency and accountability are vital" states Jan-Christoph Schoeler, Board Member at SFT. "When a customer places an order with us, we believe they have a right to know the environmental cost associated with that order, and how they might reduce it."

This game-changing move by the ShibataFenderTeam Group is expected to set a new standard in the industry. It not only challenges the fender industry to step up but also paves the way for a more transparent and sustainable future in manufacturing.

A sustainable approach.

As the leading manufacturer and true partner, we have always been dedicated to making a profound impact on the industry while supporting a better and greener tomorrow. Thus, as part of our transparency and accountability commitment, we present our sustainability approach public on our website.

The SFT sustainable approach focuses on three strategic priorities: carbon reduction initiatives, corporate responsibility, and people. By tackling carbon emissions, prioritizing the well-being of our people, and upholding responsible business practices, we actively work towards addressing the pressing challenges facing the maritime industry.

This approach has guided the company since day one of its history, now it is open to all stakeholders.

We, at the ShibataFenderTeam Group, are proud to protect.
