Bibby Marine makes three small changes that add up to make a big difference

Bibby Line Group // 21st October 2021

Our colleagues at Bibby Marine, demonstrated their innovative approach to customer service and reducing their impact on the environment, by putting plans in place on their WaveMaster Horizon vessel.

Mark Whitehead, BML Commercial Manager:

“To coincide with our ambitious Zero C projects which will drastically reduce our impact on the environment in the future, we wanted to do something that could have a direct impact now, while also supporting our customers to meet their own sustainability targets.

“After discussion involving all colleagues, we identified three small changes we could make that add up to make a big difference.”

“The first change was the reduction of single use plastics onboard. After close consultation with the crew, bottled water on our WaveMaster vessels have now been replaced with easy-to-use water fountains. Not only are we reducing the amount of plastic waste but we have calculated this can save 2.3 tonnes of CO2 per year.”

“Our second change was a simpler one, we’ve affectionately called ‘No Moo Mondays’. Beef has a far greater impact than other food sources and to reduce this burden Bibby Marine are no longer serving any beef products on Mondays.

“Our third change was introducing LED lighting. We wanted to swap out as many Halogen lights at the end of life for more energy efficient LED lights.

“These short projects highlight not only our commitment to ensure our customers are getting the best possible service from us, but also that we are ensuring we are honouring our commitment to be a sustainable business, minimising our environmental impact and influencing positive change.”
