Hapag-Lloyd claim up to 27% better than average reduction in CO2 emissions by its fleet compared to similar vessels

Hapag-Lloyd became the first shipping company in the world to have its entire own-managed fleet certified in accordance with the IMO’s Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI). The independent certification was carried out by Germanischer Lloyd and shows that many vessels in the Hapag-Lloyd fleet have an EEDI that is between 20 and 27% better than the average figure for the active global fleet in their respective classes. This means that these vessels emit significantly less CO2 than the average of the world fleet. These results do not include the De-rating* that has already been carried out on the majority of Hapag-Lloyd ships.

The Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) is determined using a fixed formula and shows the CO2 emissions of a cargo vessel in grams per tonne transported and sea mile travelled. EEDI was developed by the International Maritime Organization (IMO), in order to establish a standard benchmark for the energy efficiency and environmental impact of cargo vessels (container ships, bulkers, tankers, etc.).
