Øystein M. Kalleklev, Chief Executive Officer of Flex LNG Management AS, commented:
“We are pleased to publish the fourth edition of our annual ESG report. ESG is an integral part of our business strategy and we will continue to broaden the scope of our initiatives and our ESG reporting. Our business strategy is to transport LNG which is primarily utilized to replace coal and to some extent diesel in power generation. Replacing coal with natural gas cuts CO2 emissions by about half, but also cleans up the local environment due to the clean burning properties of natural gas. Furthermore, we transport the LNG on the most fuel-efficient ships in the industry, reducing the fuel consumption per transported unit close to 60% compared to the steam generation. 2021 was a challenging year operating ships when it comes to crew rotations due to Covid-19 restrictions. We have put top priority on carrying out these crew rotations despite the obstacles as the welfare of our crew is part of our social responsibility. We would therefore like to extend our gratitude to crew and onshore personnel for their diligent work and great results in this matter.”
