We will help create a resilient environment that provides for our future by pursuing a long-term goal of decarbonisation, optimising energy efficiency, and protecting, and where viable, enhancing biodiversity of the environment.
CNCo has made material progress towards improving our fleet fuel efficiency by introducing and embedding a number of measures.
To find further efficiencies, CNCo is investing in new technological advancements which will result in lower fuel consumption and thus further reduction of emissions to air.
To comply with global energy / emissions data reporting requirements we report Energy Efficiency / GHG emissions' data.
Emissions from combusting marine fossil fuels in internal combustion engines in 2019 amounted to 1,995,763 tCO2 representing 99.51% of our Scope 1 emissions.
We continue to provide environmental education to our seagoing employees through Safety Awareness Courses.
At CNCo, we understand that maintaining responsible stewardship of the biodiversity that we impact is important to maintaining a resilient natural environment.
CNCo is a founding member and an active participant of the Sustainable Shipping Initiative (SSI).
Moving in lock-step with the addition of our new tonnage is the responsible retirement of tonnage that is replaced as it reached the end of its economic life.
In 2018 we set ourselves a goal to eliminate the consumption of single-use plastic (SUP) water bottles on board our vessels.
To help reduce the Company's carbon footprint, CNCo strongly encourages employees to follow the Swire Pacific group's Green Guidelines which are based on the Green Office and Eco-Office practices.
The International Maritime Organisation (IMO) instituted new regulations that wef on 1st January 2020, Sulphur emissions from the marine sector in international waters were to be slashed.
Climate change and GHG emissions in the shipping industry simply must be addressed as the sector delivers around 90% of global trade in the most efficient way and is a key driver of the world’s economic engine.
