Cancun: Carbon War Room, a not-for-profit organization that harnesses the power of entrepreneurs to implement market-driven solutions to climate change, launched a new data hub which publicizes the relative energy efficiency of almost every large ocean-going vessel and specific data on emissions from container ships. The launch takes place during the United Nations Framework for Climate Change Convention (UNFCCC) meetings in Cancun.
Using a simple search function, users can now pull up an A to G efficiency rating for around 60,000 "active" vessels, including the majority of the world's container ships, tankers, bulk carriers, cargo ships, cruise ships and ferries.
"The Carbon War Room has been advocating the need for business to play a leading role in the fight to reduce carbon emissions," said Sir Richard Branson, Co-Founder of the Carbon War Room. "The data hub for shipping will help the key players in the industry and their customers make better decisions for their businesses and ultimately the planet."
The website is publicly available, free of charge and goes live today. To access the website:
