Continuing efforts to seek new ways of reducing carbon footprint
Hanjin Shipping announced that its Supply Chain Carbon Calculator, developed and introduced to the public back in December, 2009, has been upgraded recently.
According to Hanjin Shipping, the former system was able to calculate only the amount of CO2 emissions from one location to another while the upgraded version can provide information by period, multiple destinations and Bill of Lading number.
Hanjin Shipping comments, “We have noticed that our customers are becoming more and more conscious of their carbon footprint in line with the industry-wide efforts to reduce CO2 emissions.”
The company added, “We are delighted to be able to provide our customers with transparent CO2 emissions data. This unique device will certainly benefit our customers as well as the shipping industry. We will also continue our efforts to seek new ways of reducing our carbon footprint.”
Meanwhile, Hanjin Shipping’s Supply Chain Carbon Calculator has been created based on the company’s vessel emission factors calculated according to the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and Clean Cargo Working Group (CCWG) CO2 calculation methodology and verified by the world-renowned verifiers Det Norske Veritas (DNV)
