Dani Lindberg new sustainability manager at Viking Line

The Åland-based shipping company Viking Line is a pioneer in developing climate-smart maritime transport on the Baltic Sea based on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. To drive and quality-assure this sustainability work, Dani Lindberg has now been named the Group’s new sustainability manager.

Viking Line has been operating on the Baltic Sea for six decades. Over the past decade, the shipping company has actively supported research and sustainability projects for preserving the sensitive marine environment. Viking Line has been awarded numerous awards for the climate-smart vessel VIKING GRACE, which came into service in 2013. In 2021, the company will introduce a new vessel, VIKING GLORY, which will be 10 percent more efficient than Viking Grace.

“Viking Line was founded and is owned by people from Åland who live and work by the sea. So it is a natural part of the company’s DNA to drive the trend towards more sustainable maritime transport in order to protect the sensitive Baltic Sea environment. We are pleased to now have an ambitious sustainability manager who can further develop our environmental and sustainability work and make it more concrete, based on the UN’S Sustainable Development Goals,” says Johanna Boijer-Svahnström, senior vice president of corporate communications at Viking Line.

Dani Lindberg has been employed at Viking Line since 2008 and has successfully headed a number of  cross-functional projects as well as implementation of the Group’s procurement policy and data protection framework in line with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Dani Lindberg brings all this experience with him in his new role as the Group’s sustainability manager.

“It is an exciting and urgent task to be involved in setting the tone for Viking Line’s sustainability work. As a major player in transport, travel and experiences, the company can actually make a difference, and there are many opportunities. We are already well on our way to achieving the International Maritime Organization’s emissions target of reducing emissions from maritime transport 50 per cent by 2050. But it is important to remember that it is not just a question of fuel; we are looking under every rock and reviewing almost every aspect of our operations, from eco-driving and technological innovations to procurement policies and restaurant operations," says Dani Lindberg.

The company will publish its 2019 annual report, which includes its sustainability report, on April 23, 2020. Read more: https://www.sales.vikingline.com/my-booking/good-to-know/sustainable-travel/
