Hamburg Süd Awarded for Environmental Consciousness

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

Hamburg Süd has been honored for its sustainable and environmentally-conscious conduct. In late July, the company received the Air Quality Award from the San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Group (backed by the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach). Just a few days later, it garnered the Gulf Guardian Award of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The EPA conferred the Gulf Guardian Award on Hamburg Süd in the Binational category within the context of the Gulf of Mexico Programme because the shipping company had participated voluntarily in measures aimed at reducing emissions in the Gulf of Mexico. In these trials, Hamburg Süd called at the ports of Veracruz, Altamira and Houston with its container ship “Cap San Lorenzo” using Low Sulphur Marine Gas Oil (LSMGO), which has a sulphur content of 0.1 percent.
 
With the Air Quality Award, the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach recognised innovative measures helping to reduce emissions and lower air pollution. In the case of Hamburg Süd, the shipping company was one of the leading participants in the Green Flag Program of the Port of Long Beach, which, in 2010, contained a voluntary speed reduction to below 12 knots during entry and departure from the port.
