Hapag-Lloyd joins Shenzhen Port low sulphur emissions scheme

Hapag-Lloyd joins Shenzhen Port low sulphur emissions scheme
Shenzhen Port's efforts to reduce emissions is gaining some traction with Hapag-Lloyd announcing it has entered into an agreement with the port to cut sulphur oxide emissions.

In continuing efforts to improve air quality in cities, Hapag-Lloyd will voluntarily use fuel with a sulphur content of less than 0.5% while its ships are docked at the terminal.

“By joining the Shenzhen Port Green Convention, Hapag-Lloyd has once again demonstrated its commitment to environmental and health protection on a voluntary basis that goes beyond national and international requirements, thus emphasising how important this is to our company,” said coo Anthony Firmin.

Hapag-Lloyd is already participating in Hong Kong's groundbreaking  Fair Winds Charter voluntary environmental protection programme.
