Energy efficiency is key
Innovation has become a key component in our corporate environmental strategy, due in no small part to our heavy focus on on energy efficiency. And our work to lower energy consumption is yielding environmental gains. By using less fuel, we also reduce our CO2 and other air emissions, such as SOx, NOx and particulate matter. This reduces our environmental footprint and, frankly, our operating costs – which will ultimately benefit our customers as well as our own business.
Keeping our oceans clean
As important as energy efficiency is, it doesn’t tell the whole story. We also want to keep our oceans clean and protect local ecosystems from contamination with microorganisms. To this end, we’ve developed a breakthrough ballast water treatment system that cleans the ships’ ballast water before it’s released into the sea.
