APL launches environmental website
The fourth-largest container-shipping line in the world – APL - announced the launch of a new website that the Southeast Asia-based carrier said highlights eco-initiatives with its vessels and terminals regarding air emissions and water quality.
â€śMoving our customersâ€™ cargo and supporting global trade are our key objectives,â€ť said Eng Aik Meng, president of APL. â€śEqually important is the need to operate responsibly in managing our environmental footprint at sea and on land,â€ť he said.
The website - www.apl.com/environment/ - already includes APLâ€™s own enviro efforts including: cold ironing, slow steaming, and use of emulsified and biodiesel fuels.
The new website also showcases the companyâ€™s environment policy.
