Japan's NYK Line say they have received certification from classification society Lloyd's Register (LR) for two of its PCTCs (pure car and truck carrier) for the disclosure of accurate numerical values based on proper methods of collecting environmental data, including the handling of onboard waste and the emission of greenhouse gases (CO2).

The certification was provided by third-party certifier Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance Limited (LRQA).
The certification confirmed the accurate disclosure of data for about 20 environmental indicators composing the Clean Shipping Index (CSI).

The CSI is used for measuring and evaluating the environmental effects of vessel emissions, and NYK says it is the first Japanese shipping company to obtain such certification of these environmental indicators.

Clean Shipping Index (CSI)

This index developed by the Clean Shipping Project, a Swedish NPO, was established in 2007. The index comprises 20 categories related to the environment. Since the following year CSI data from vessel and shipping companies has been disclosed by the Clean Shipping Network.
