We want to contribute to a greener world through close partnerships and trusted future proof solutions


At Svanehøj, we believe that accelerating climate changes calls for a complete transformation from fossil fuels to clean and renewable energy types.




The need for decarbonization requires leaving fossil fuels behind for better alternatives.


At Svanehøj, we are very proud of our purpose and take great pride in our involvement in the transition to net-zero fuels in the maritime sector. We supply full-scale solutions that accommodate all future fuel types and are tailored to the needs of our customers.


Our product impact assessment presents our contribution to decarbonization in the maritime sector through the supply of our fuel pumps to operating vessels in 2022. The calculation is based on vessel type, size, and fuel type as stated in our reference list of delivered fuel pumps, combined with vessel specifications, data, and voyage assumptions from Clarksons Research, the world's largest shipping services provider, and carbon (CO2) emission factors from European Union regulations. As vessels, and Svanehøj’s pump solutions, typically have a lifetime of 20-35 years, the assessment is based on a 25-year lifetime period.


Our product impact assessment will be updated on a yearly basis with the latest and most applicable data sets. Currently, we can conduct calculations for only 45% of our 2022 reference list paired with the relevant vessel specification, data, and voyage assumptions. Consequently, we have chosen to extrapolate the result for our complete reference list. The missing data will be available in the future.



Engage to Sustain is our framework for implementing our ESG targets and initiatives, and serves as our roadmap toward 2025.


We have divided our ESG ambitions into four focus areas People, Planet, Solutions, and Supply Chain. These areas were identified from our materiality assessment and with inspiration from The Triple Bottom Line sustainability framework of profit, people, and the planet.


  • Zero health & safety incidents from 2023.


    We want to attract and retain our talent base by establishing Svanehøj Academy Entry and Svanehøj Excellence programs by 2024. With the first enrollments in 2025.
