20 February 2020
Air emissions sustainability maersk

Air emissions from ocean-going shipping have negative effects on human health and the natural environment. We support regulation which will significantly reduce these effects. But, without a level playing field in terms of compliance and the enforcement of regulation, the competitiveness and profitability of compliant companies will be hurt.

Ambition

Our key ambition is to comply with air emissions regulations and drive regulatory enforcement towards a level playing field.

Targets

Fully comply with regulatory demands and continue to invest in maintaining and implementing solutions that will enable this. Actively engage at international and regional levels to secure a level playing field across the industry.

Progress 2019

Successfully completed preparations for implementation of the IMO's global cap on sulphur dioxide from 1st January 2020. Registred five cases of non-compliance with SOx emissions requirements in regulated zones, caused by errors during fuel switch.
