APL’s Records Highest CO2 Emission Cuts in 2016

Singapore-based container shipping company APL reached its highest recorded fleet carbon dioxide emissions reduction of 48% in 2016, compared to its base level in 2009.

Verified by Lloyd’s Register Group according to the Clean Cargo Working Group (CCWG) verification protocol and ISO14064-3:2006 standard, this reduction marks APL’s seventh consecutive year of improvements.

“APL is pleased to register our best carbon reduction performance as yet, improving our fleet emission level by about 3%, versus our reduction in 2015,” Nicolas Sartini, APL Chief Executive Officer, said.

APL informed that its vessel performance management and maintenance strategy ensured that its operations stay efficient and green. The company added that it lowered its fleet carbon dioxide emission levels annually through improvements in operational efficiencies, fleet and voyage optimisation, as well as the deployment of a fuel-efficient and environmentally-friendly fleet of vessels.

The shipping firm aims to reduce carbon dioxide emissions per container transported by 30% between 2015 and 2025, according to a target set by the CMA CGM Group. APL will also persist with cold-ironing development and pioneer ballast water treatment development.
