J. Lauritzen has been serving the maritime trade since 1884, and during our more than 130 years of existence, we have been engaged in a range of different segments of the shipping industry.
Today, J. Lauritzen is a global provider of seaborne transportation of dry bulk cargoes as well as petrochemical and liquefied petroleum gases, and our services are offered through our operational business units Lauritzen Bulkers and Lauritzen Kosan.
We are wholly-owned by Lauritzen Fonden; a commercial foundation with the objective of supporting shipping, culture, social humanitarian work and education.
We believe that part of a quality service is to conduct business in a responsible manner creating benefits broadly while being open, fair and honest in all our activities.
We acknowledge the environmental impacts of our operations, and as part of our commitment to the UN Global Compact as well as our environmental policy, we assume our responsibility to always work towards minimising our environmental footprint.
However, we strongly believe that the environmental challenges facing our industry cannot be solved by companies acting individually, which is why we seek industry collaboration where deemed appropriate in order to increase the impact of our efforts. This approach allows for mutual capacity development while adding value to our corporate responsibility efforts.
