The shipping industry’s main environmental concerns are CO2, SOX, NOX emissions, waste handling and ballast water treatment, as well as ensuring safe journey with no accidents in fragile marine environments. Understanding the industry’s environmental challenges,BPI International Shipping wants to be part of the solution.

The programme consists of a series of initiatives to save energy and improve combustion efficiency in combination with new maintenance and monitoring procedures . Even though seabourne carriage is the most efficient means of transportation in environmental terms – with significantly lower CO2 impact and lower scores in other emission areas per transported ton of cargo than transportation by for example train or truck–BPI International Shipping see it as its obligation to adopt initiatives to reduce CO2 emissions and other emissions to the lowest possible level and thus contribute to a better environment.
