LA-Long Beach ports honour APL for air quality improvement technologies

THE 2013 San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan (CAAP) Air Quality Award has been presented to APL, the container shipping arm of Singapore's NOL, for a second year in a row, jointly, by the Port of Los Angeles and the Port of Long Beach.

APL was honoured for its "Innovative Air Quality Improvement Technologies" and commitment to reducing the environmental impact of ocean transportation, particularly, its engagement in innovative air quality improvement technologies, including the installation of a seawater scrubber aboard the APL England.

"The selection of APL as the 2013 recipient of the CAAP Air Quality Award is a meaningful acknowledgement of our efforts and contributions in developing effective environmental solutions," said APL regional president for the Americas Gene Seroka in a statement issued by the parent group.

The company said it is on course to reduce carbon emissions by 30 per cent from its shipping operations by 2015, based on CO2 levels audited in 2009.

Last year, the shipping line won the CAAP award for demonstrating "Air Quality Leadership at the Corporate Level," and in April this year, containership, APL Yangshan, received the Singapore Registry of Ships Green Ship of the Year accolade for its outstanding Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) rating.
