With knowledge comes responsibility

SSPA likes to create success for our clients through long-term relationships, integrity and by using knowledge as our tool. We need to do this in a responsible way in order to achieve sustainability, including a healthy economy, for our stakeholders and ourselves.

Through decades of research, innovation implementation and experience, SSPA has acquired extensive knowledge about the maritime industry and its significance for the environment and the world in general. Knowledge is the tool with which we support our stakeholders – offering the holistic overview as well as the specific expertise.

And as we see it, with great knowledge comes great responsibility. Accordingly, we are responsible to all of you – our clients, our business partners, our employees, the community and the environment.

Economic responsibility

We have a responsibility towards our shareholders to conduct our business in a way that secures profitability. Since the company is owned by a foundation, the profit that goes back to our owners is reinvested in research and education, for the benefit of the entire industry.

Social and ethical responsibility

Caring for the community means being an honest, reliable, responsible citizen, partner and employer. As we believe in long-term relationships, we need to gain our clients’, partners’ and employees’ trust, therefore maintaining high integrity is vital to us.

At SSPA, we are depending on the uniqueness of our employees. We believe in caring for everyone in our staff, providing safe working conditions and a climate that encourages every employee to reach his or her full potential.

We provide health check-ups, health allowances, parental leave compensation and continuous professional development. 

SSPA also strives for cultural and ethnical diversity and equality between men and women. The working standards at SSPA are ruled by Swedish working laws and the same standards are demanded from our suppliers.

Environmental responsibility

Sustainability is at the core of everything we do. We believe that only by linking economy, environment, technology and people closely together, are we able to achieve optimum energy efficiency and create a sustainable future for the planet.

This thinking permeates the solutions we offer our clients – from different forms of maritime solutions and energy saving to risk assessment and infrastructure planning – as well as our own conduct. SSPA’s working methods are adjusted to minimise harmful effects on the environment and to achieve good occupational health and safety.
