CSL, WWF-Canada Combat Climate Change

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

Canada Steamship Lines (CSL) signed a five-year agreement with World Wildlife Fund Canada (WWF-Canada) that aims to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions within the CSL fleet, and seeks ongoing solutions for improving the wider marine industry’s ecological footprint.

Under the terms of the agreement, CSL will obtain expert advisory services from WWF-Canada as it adopts, develops and promotes energy efficiency and emission reduction initiatives while strengthening its leadership role in sustainable marine management.

The scope of activities within the agreement is wide ranging with the specific goals outlined in a partnership work-plan that spans 2010-14. The first year will focus on strategy development to measure CSL’s current footprint and set ambitious emission reduction targets for carbon dioxide (CO2), Sulphur Oxides (Sox) and Nitrous Oxides (NOx). As well, CSL will develop research to support the environmental benefits of modal shift to marine transportation to help de-carbonize the Canadian transportation sector. Years 2-5 will focus on monitoring, reporting and verification.
