Shipper Hapag-Lloyd plans 20 percent cut in CO2 emissions by 2020
German container shipping firm Hapag-Lloyd plans to reduce its CO₂ emissions by 20 percent by 2020 compared with 2016 levels. Its aim is to help support a drive to halve emissions in the global shipping industry, reports Reuters. “We have deliberately set a very ambitious goal for ourselves in terms of CO2 emissions because we view sustainability as self-evident, active involvement rather than lip service,” said the company’s Senior Director of Sustainability Management Jörg Erdmann in a press release.
