LR Verifies OOCL’s CO2 and SOx Emissions Data

OOCL’s emissions data reported into the BSR Clean Cargo Working Group (CCWG) verified as true and accurate by Lloyd's Register, supporting the operator’s commitment to reducing GHG emissions from their vessels.
 
Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL) is an integrated international container transportation company with a commitment to environmental care. Lloyd’s Register has confirmed that OOCL’s emissions data reported into the BSR CCWG Environmental Performance Metrics Assessment (EPMA) tool has been verified as true and accurate, supporting the leading operator’s commitment to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from their vessels. This work builds on and supports Lloyd's Register's work in helping shipowners improve safety and performance while reducing environmental impact, along with Lloyd's Register's many projects which improve the monitoring, reporting and verification of sustainability and climate change data and information for organizations worldwide.


The verification, for calendar year 2013, was carried out by Lloyd's Register Marine and LRQA - both of which are members of the Lloyd’s Register group and hereafter collectively referred to as Lloyd’s Register - utilizing the basic principles of ISO 14064-1:2006. ISO 14064 series give guidance for the quantification and reporting, and validation and verification of GHG assertions.


The BSR CCWG is a global business-to-business initiative by leading cargo carriers and their customers, dedicated to environmental performance improvements in marine container transport through measurement, evaluation, and reporting. The CCWG gathered environmental data from more than 2,600 container vessels for calendar year 2013. Lloyd’s Register developed the verification procedure for BSR that is now used by all CCWG verifiers.


The OOCL work was unique in that not only did it assure the CO2 and SOx data of the 97 vessels submitted to the BSR CCWG, but it also included the total direct GHG emissions (Scope 1[1]) of the whole OOCL 2013 container fleet. Mr. Stephen Ng, Director of Trades of OOCL said, “This is the third consecutive year that OOCL completed the verification by using the CCWG standard. By extending the scope of the verification to include the ISO standard for greenhouse gas, it not only demonstrates our long-term commitment to emissions data integrity and environmental performance, but also enhances OOCL’s sustainability profile to a wider audience of stakeholders that appreciates greater transparency and forward-thinking green objectives.”


Lloyd’s Register’s mission is to enhance the safety of life, property and the environment and to make a difference to society.  “As an organization, we have been involved with developing and delivering schemes to recognise the safety, commercial and environmental performance of shipping for many years,” said John Rowley, President, Lloyd’s Register Asia Pacific.  “OOCL’s achievement is a testament to their environmental commitment, through publicly demonstrating that the environmental performance data of their fleet is prepared with high accuracy, completeness and transparency.”
