This is the fourth time that OOCL received this top honour in the Transport and Logistics sector category.
The HKAEE is organised by the Environmental Campaign Committee (ECC), Environmental Protection Department of the HKSAR and in conjunction with nine local organisations including business chambers, industry bodies as well as social and environmental groups.
In terms of emissions reduction, OOCL had successfully moved forward into 2020 to meet the new sulphur cap requirements as stipulated by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) by primarily switching to the use of clean fuel for its fleet and exploring viable alternatives such as scrubber systems to reduce emissions.
Said OOCL chief operating officer Kenny Ye: 'We are very happy to receive this top honour for the fourth time. As an international maritime shipping company, OOCL has been contributing to many sustainable development initiatives and are well recognised for our commitment over the years.'
