ZIM’s Emission Performance On Track

The CCWG (Clean Cargo Working Group) of BRS, an industry-wide initiative dedicated to improving the environmental performance of marine transport, has published its 2013 results, accumulated from 22 top carriers worldwide, covering about 85% of the global container cargo carried in 2013.

ZIM, the biggest cargo shipping company in Israel, which only joined the group last year, was ranked 4th (out of 22 container carriers) in the 2013 CCWG lowest average emissions performance, the company said.

ZIM was ranked first on SOX average emissions, with the lowest emissions of 22 carriers; 4th on lowest average CO2 emissions for reefer containers; and 5th on lowest average CO2 emissions for dry containers.

Dudu Arbel, ZIM’s VP Procurement & Ships Management, said: “ZIM has always been in the forefront of the industry with regard to overachieving environmental standards, therefore, on many occasions our performance has been above the international requirements.

ZIM will continue to improve and set ambitious goals in order to further reduce the carbon footprint, protect the environment and promote sustainability values, which are part of our corporate vision.”
