    Social responsibility

    For Port of Grenaa , social responsibility is about looking after our employees and taking responsibility for helping young people as well as adults outside the labour market closer to a job. That's why we make a big effort to offer apprenticeships, flexjobs and small jobs, while also providing clarification and upskilling for the unemployed.

    We also do a lot to promote the good life, including by contributing to community development and supporting charitable initiatives.

    Environment and climate

    Port of Grenaa will lead the way in environmental sustainability. This means that we continuously work to reduce the port's own environmental impact and collaborate on future green solutions. We prioritise recycling and circular economy, and make investments on a sustainable basis when it makes sense.

    Therefore, Port of Grenaa has set an ambitious target of 10% of the Port of Grenaa's profits to be used for sustainable transformation within the group's strategic focus areas.

    Concrete actions in sustainability and CSR

    Partnership with NRGI

    Port of Grenaa has signed a ten-year partnership agreement with NRGI. In the future, the energy group will ensure that the port's operations are powered by 100% green electricity from renewable sources, and in the longer term supply locally produced power from newly established projects in the local area.

    Biodiversity project in the port

    Cod is disappearing from Danish waters at an unprecedented rate. That's why Port of Grenaa has teamed up with WWF, Ørsted and the Kattegat Centre to make a difference for cod locally. In spring 2021, 10 biohuts were therefore established to become home to cod fry in Port of Grenaa. Because if cod thrive, it benefits the entire biodiversity in the water.

    All-in on onshore power

    The largest installation vessels, ships and rigs are guaranteed 100% green power at Port of Grenaa well into the future. From 2023, the port will offer no less than 20 megawatts of onshore power. In addition, we have kick-started the establishment of a comprehensive electricity infrastructure, ensuring flexible connectivity for mobile shore power installations. We are looking into an investment in shore power plant number two, and are ready to invest in more plants when the need arises.

    Electrification of port operations

    We have an ongoing focus on converting the port's vehicles and equipment to electric or hybrid. In 2021, we have invested in two new electric cars and a Liebherr mobile crane that can run on electricity.

    10 charging stations for electric cars

    Grenaa Port's partner Sustain has set up ten charging stations for electric cars on the port's premises. The charging stations from SustainRecharge can be used freely by everyone, and will thus benefit many of the port's users, whether they are the many employees of the companies at the port, or tourists taking the Stena Line ferry to Sweden or visiting the Kattegat Centre.

    Waste sorting

    Port of Grenaa has established an in-house waste management system, as well as a specially designed container system for waste management at the port. We have given the port's employees thorough training in waste sorting and they have received a "nudging mug" as a thank you for helping to sort waste and supporting the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
