Lloyd’s Register has confirmed that Orient Overseas Container Line’s (OOCL) emissions data reported into the BSR CCWG Environmental Performance Metrics Assessment (EPMA) tool are true and accurate.
The confirmation supports OOCL’s commitment to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from their vessels.
This work builds on and supports Lloyd’s Register’s work in helping shipowners improve safety and performance while reducing environmental impact, along with Lloyd’s Register’s many projects which improve the monitoring, reporting and verification of sustainability and climate change data and information for organisations worldwide.
The verification, for calendar year 2013, was carried out by Lloyd’s Register Marine and LRQA – both of which are members of the Lloyd’s Register group and hereafter collectively referred to as Lloyd’s Register – utilising the basic principles of ISO 14064-1:2006.
ISO 14064 series give guidance for the quantification and reporting, and validation and verification of GHG assertions.
The BSR CCWG is a global business-to-business initiative by leading cargo carriers and their customers, dedicated to environmental performance improvements in marine container transport through measurement, evaluation, and reporting.
The CCWG gathered environmental data from more than 2,600 container vessels for calendar year 2013. Lloyd’s Register developed the verification procedure for BSR that is now used by all CCWG verifiers.
The OOCL work was unique in that not only did it assure the CO2 and SOx data of the 97 vessels submitted to the BSR CCWG, but it also included the total direct GHG emissions (Scope 1 ) of the whole OOCL 2013 container fleet.
