Wallenius Wilhelmsen GHG Emissions Cert

Thursday, April 15, 2010

Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics, a global shipping and logistics company, has become the first shipping company to receive formal 3rd party verification of its inventory processes for green house gas emissions.

“Guided by our future vision of a zero-emissions supply chain, WWL has adopted rigorous emissions inventory processes based upon the Green House Gas (GHG) Protocol.  This will enable us to better manage and reduce carbon emissions and related costs from our customers’ global supply chains,” explained Kai Kraass, COO of Ocean Services at Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics.

Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics contracted Det Norske Veritas AS (DNV), the world’s leading independent provider of risk management services, to provide an independent third-party limited assurance verification that WWL’s Ocean Transportation GHG inventory conforms to the accounting requirements of ISO 14064-1* and the GHG protocol.
