APL to use low sulphur fuel in Hong Kong

APL to use low sulphur fuel in Hong Kong

Hong Kong: APL has become the latest shipping line to say it will switch to using low sulphur fuel while in Hong Kong harbour. The line said it would be using low sulphur fuel on its 85 ships a week that call in Hong Kong and this would reduce sulphur dioxide emissions by 87%. "We have a large presence in Hong Kong and with that comes the responsibility to be a good corporate citizen," said George Goldman, vice president and managing director for APL in Hong Kong and South China. "We are taking this step unilaterally to make the point that global trade growth and environmental health are not mutually exclusive goals." APL has used low-sulfur in ships calling at the Ports of Los Angeles and Seattle since 2007. [06/10/10]
