Taiwan's Evergreen Line was presented with the Environment Award at the 2013 Lloyd's List Global Awards Ceremony recently held in the Lancaster Hotel in London.

Davis Lian, President of Evergreen Shipping Agency (U.K.), accepted the award stating "It is a great credit to the Company. This Award recognises our commitment to bring the highest quality of service to our customers while preserving the global ecosystem. Striking a balance between providing transport services and being environmentally sensitive is not easy. But Evergreen's strong sense of social responsibility ensures that the company will consider every possible way of minimising its global footprint."

An initiative that reflects its commitment to a better environmental future, is Evergreen Line's cooperation with Cambridge University in the UK and the National Central University in Taiwan in the Pacific Greenhouse Gases Measurement (PGGM) project. Data on levels of greenhouse gases are being collected from 9 Evergreen containerships. The statistics are extremely valuable for scientists who study the change of greenhouse gas emissions. The project represents one of the key contributions by Taiwan in the study of global warming and climate change.

Delivered from 2005 through 2008, the Evergreen Group's ten S-class Greenships exceeded all international regulations regarding environmental protection. Their design incorporated features such as double-skinned hulls; protected locations for fuel oil tanks to reduce the risk of oil leakage, ballast water treatment plant to minimise transfer of marine organism, and cold-ironing power systems to cut down emissions in port.
