North American Marine Environment Protection Association (NAMEPA) says that in recognition of their strong commitment to sustainability its members  have been awarded an automatic positive adjustment (+5 points) towards their vessels’ RightShip Environmental Rating.

“NAMEPA is one of only 8 organizations worldwide to secure this high standing in our system” says Warwick Norman, CEO of RightShip. “We believe it is important to acknowledge and reward those who have invested time and effort to operate above compliance, and who demonstrate dedication to environmental sustainability”.

RightShip’s Existing Vessel Design Index (EVDI) and GHG Emissions Rating enables charterers to select the most energy efficient vessel. This is achieved by estimating the theoretical amount of CO2 emitted per tonne nautical mile travelled, based on the ship design characteristics at the time of build.

Unlike the IMO MEPC’s Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI), RightShip’s EVDI can be applied to existing ships and allows relative comparison of a ship’s CO2 emissions to vessels of a similar size and type.

Major charterers and shippers are taking a leadership position in sustainability, driving industry change through market-based solutions. As of June 2014, 22 charterers – or 23% of global non-containerized trade – factor energy efficiency into their decision making. This accounts for 1.8 billion tonnes of cargo, or 21,500 annual vessel movements. A growing number of terminals recognize RightShip’s Environmental Rating and are now offering financial incentives to ship owners based on their environmental performance.
 
“We are delighted with this recognition from RightShip” says NAMEPA’s Co-founder and Executive Director, Carleen Lyden-Kluss. “This is a further reward for our members’ demonstrated individual commitment to preservation of the marine environment.”
