ForSea operates a sustainable ferry route, deploying state-of-the art technology to lessen the impact on the environment, while constantly striving to strengthen regional integration around Øresund. ForSea is certified in environmental management in accordance with the ISO 14001:2015 standard.
From 2007, the ferries on the route were the first to comply with SECA emission rules, which became mandatory in 2015. In addition, the group continuously works to reduce CO2 emissions and reduce the ferry operations’ impact on the marine environment to the benefit of the Øresund region. ForSea has initiated the introduction of battery operation on the two ferries Tycho Brahe and Aurora to further reduce the ferries’ environmental impact.
ForSea and the ferry route furthermore contribute to the local community on both sides of Øresund, generating jobs and supporting cultural, educational and business life.
In December 2019, we became the first shipping company in Sweden and Denmark to be MSC and ASC certified for serving sustainably harvested fish. We were also the first shipping company in the world to serve exclusively MSC and ASC certified fish and shellfish. Learn more about our MSC-certification.
