HONG KONG: OOCL was very honored to receive the “Excellence in Environmental Management” award at the 2019 Lloyd’s List Europe Awards ceremony in London on December 10, 2019. Formerly known as the Lloyd’s List Global Awards, this awards program is one of the most anticipated events in the industry, recognizing excellence across the maritime sector.
The “Excellence in Environmental Management” award pays tribute to a company which has made significant contributions to minimizing marine environment pollution. The assessment covers
several areas such as environmental friendly ship designs and operation, reductions in fossil fuel use, and the green impact from corporate sustainability policies.
OOCL believes all businesses should be responsible for their effects on the environment. In our sustainable economic development agenda over the years, we have adopted many effective environmental initiatives ranging from stakeholder engagements with environment-focused organizations, green investments on our vessels, to the development of related digital technologies to better manage fuel consumption and thereby reduce unnecessary emissions.
Receiving the award on behalf of OOCL, Mr. Derek O’Galligan, Managing Director of OOCL – UK Branch said: “OOCL is very pleased to be acknowledged for our commitment and performance in environmental excellence. This award is undeniably a huge encouragement for us to continue taking a proactive and responsible role in our environmental agenda and strive for a more sustainable future. It is an important milestone reflecting our efforts in building a sound sustainability profile in the industry.
Moving forward, OOCL will continue to work closely with our business partners and stakeholders to embrace our long-term sustainability goals.”
