APL Halves Fleet Carbon Emissions

APL announced a 47.4% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions per container transported per km in 2018, compared to 2009.

The result follows the Environmental Performance Assessment (EPA) of APL's 2018 carbon dioxide emission data by the global non-profit organization Business for Social Responsibility's (BSR's) Clean Cargo Working Group (CCWG). The Clean Cargo EPA data was verified by Lloyd's Register Group according to the Clean Cargo verification protocol and principles of ISO14064-3:2006 standard.

Looking forward to the 2020 Global Sulfur Cap, APL will be using low-sulfur compliant fuel oil across its vessel fleet; employing advanced air quality systems on some vessels that clean emissions before they are released into the atmosphere; and deploying liquefied natural gas (LNG)-fueled vessels according to vessel plans of the CMA CGM Group. APL will make further inroads in environmental protection and ocean conservation as the Group takes delivery of nine new 22,000 TEU (Twenty-foot Equivalent Units) LNG-powered ships from 2020 onwards.

Reducing air pollutants, APL vessels fitted with cold ironing capabilities use shore power while at berth in U.S. West Coast ports; and in Yantian after a successful pilot with the port.
