When it comes to ferry travel, Fjord1 has a long and proud history extending all the way back to 1858. In this region of long fjords and many islands, travel by boat has played a vital role up to the present. Yet much has changed since 1858: technology has evolved, moving on from steamships via gas ferries to today’s electric ferries.
In 2021, Fjord1 carried 9 million vehicles and 16 million passengers, making the company a mainstay of Norwegian society. Fjord1 aims to be the safest and most attractive provider of environmentally friendly ferry and high-speed passenger boat services for the company’s customers and partners. By providing a friendly and professional service, Fjord1's employees will make travel on the fjords a safe, comfortable and seamless experience.
The main areas of sustainability prioritised by Fjord1 are the sustainable use of resources and a good working environment, as well as sound business ethics. Environmental, financial and social factors are included in Fjord1’s business activities and in all parts of the company’s day-to-day operation.
Fjord1 has integrated the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into its overarching strategy, and has identified the SDGs where we have the best opportunity to make a difference through our continued efforts. The company is at the forefront with regard to the development of environment-friendly tourism and ferry operations in Norway.
Fjord1 will continue to pursue its long-term strategy of being the best provider of eco-friendly transport in the years to come.
