Evergreen Marine obtains double certification for GHG emission inventory


Following a thorough inspection and verification of its GHG emissions for all business operations, the company reports that it simultaneously obtained the two international environmental protection standard certificates of ISO14064-1:2018 and GHG Protocol in July.

Evergreen regards these measures as part of its responsibility as a ‘Guardian of the Green Earth’. The company is using advanced technologies to build a fleet of eco-friendly vessels, which comply with the IMO’s Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI) regulations and enable best fuel efficiency, and continues to replace old ships with new ones.

One month ago, the carrier confirmed a huge newbuilding order estimated to be worth as much as $5bn for 24 methanol dual-fuel containerships of 16,000 TEU capacity from yards in Korea and Japan, expected for delivery in 2026-7.

Currently 80% of ships in its fleet are less than 10 years old, which Evergreen says already allows it to operate with maximum efficiency in providing transportation service with lower energy consumption.
