Care For Today & Tomorrow

As one of the world’s leading seaborne transporters of petrochemical gases and natural gas liquids, Evergas recognizes its social and environmental responsibility.

We are committed to sustainable thinking as we believe this will unlock growth to the benefit of both Evergas and society.

Our efforts in sustainable development are particularly focused on, but not limited to, the following areas: Innovative Technology & The Environment, Health Safety & Security (HSS) & Development of Human Resources, Governance Standards.

Being an ethical and responsible business partner is of utmost importance to us. We believe in acting for the future by caring for today and tomorrow. For that reason we created the following objectives.

Innovative Technology & The Environment

Objective

Continue to be in the forefront of the industry by creating sustainable and pioneering solutions that improve efficiencies, and reduce our environmental footprint.

The world economy is in constant growth which is driving an ever increasing demand for petrochemical and liquefied gases, and without these our fast-paced and dynamic everyday-life could not function in the way we are used to. While alternative sources cannot contribute significantly, oil and gas remain the world’s major energy source.

Moreover, natural gases have a rainbow of uses – they are used to cook food, they are crucial element in building cars, homes, textiles, cosmetics, medicine and technical devises. Evergas transports the gas necessary for modern global consumption, but we are committed to making gas transport greener, more efficient and safer.

In 2013 Evergas ordered 8 vessels from the Dragon series. This series is particularly interesting seen from a sustainable perspective because it is the most advanced multi-gas vessels and the first vessels designed to make perfect use of the by-product from its cargo.
