When sailing to Stockholm, and back to Gothenburg, the ship Götheborg uses RME biodiesel instead of marine diesel in two of its four fuel tanks. The initiative is part of a bigger sustainability commitment to minimise the ship’s environmental impact and promote solutions for a more sustainable world.
