Polarcus Receives First-Ever Level 1 Triple-E™ Rating

Leading the industry, responsibly.


Polarcus has today received the world’s first-ever DNV GL Level 1 Triple-E™ rating. The official declaration was handed over to Polarcus CEO, Rolf Rønningen, and Polarcus SVP Marine Acquisition, Duncan Eley, by DNV during a client seminar held in Stavanger, Norway on 28 November 2012.

Triple-E™ is a voluntary environmental rating scheme for ships with a rating from Level 4 to Level 1, where 1 is the highest. To achieve Level 1, all levels must be complied with and there are areas of compliance within management, operation and design. The rating is based on a verification of a ship’s actual energy efficiency and environmental performance, carried out by an independent third party. This gives a transparent and detailed view of the company and vessel performance and associated standards. Fundamental key elements evaluated include:

Environmental management systems in place and implemented

  • Energy efficient operation as part of policies, action plans and daily operations
  • Energy efficient ship design
  • Verifiable monitoring, measurements and documentation schemes
