PIL's fleet is awarded Environmental Ship Index certification


Singapore's Pacific International Lines has attained Environmental Ship Index (ESI) certification for its fleet comprising 500,000 TEU, ahead of the International Maritime Organization's January 2020 deadline for ships to use marine fuel with a sulphur content cap of 0.5 per cent.
The ESI certification is an on-going initiative by the World Ports Sustainability Programme, which offers a voluntary programme for ship owners to enrol their vessels, attesting that their vessels exceed the basic standard set by the IMO, reported Steel Guru.
To qualify for certification, vessels have to demonstrate that their emission level of nitrogen oxide and sulphur oxide and carbon oxide is well below what is permitted by the IMO. Many leading shipping lines have participated in this initiative and this effort is well-recognised by many major ports worldwide including those in the US, Europe and Asia.
The International Association for Ports and Harbours set up the WPSP in 2017, with the aim of enhancing and coordinating future sustainability efforts of ports worldwide as well as fostering international cooperation with partners in the supply chain.
PIL chairman Teo Siong Seng was quoted as saying: "Sustainability will remain a key part of how we conduct our business and we take protecting our maritime and port environment very seriously. We are doing this not just for ourselves but for the next generation who will be inheriting this earth from us.
"PIL is proud to be part of the programme and we will continue to engage with business, governmental and societal stakeholders to create sustainable value-add to the local communities and beyond."
