OOCL accredited for environmental data integrity

Lloyd's Register verifies OOCL's CO2 and SOx emissions data.

Updated on 06 Jun 2014 18:21 GMT

OOCL has announced that, for the first time, dual environmental reporting standards through the use of both Clean Cargo Working Group (CCWG) and ISO 14064-1 verifications have successfully been adopted to certify the transparency, accuracy, completeness, consistency and relevance of OOCL's data disclosure on vessel emissions in 2013.

OOCL was accredited by Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance (LRQA), an independent business assurance service provider based in the United Kingdom, after checking the carbon dioxide, sulphur oxides and Greenhouse Gas (GHG) (Scope 1) emission levels of OOCL vessels.

LRQA verified that OOCL prepared all the proper documentation and records showing the effective management over data integrity and that not a single discrepancy, misstatement and nonconformity was identified between the emission data collected in the samples from the randomly selected vessels by LRQA and the data submitted by OOCL for the year 2013.

"As an organisation, we have been involved with developing and delivering schemes to recognise the safety, commercial and environmental performance of shipping for many years," commented John Rowley, President of Lloyd's Register Asia Pacific. "OOCL’s achievement is a testament to their environmental commitment, through publicly demonstrating that the environmental performance data of their fleet is prepared with high accuracy, completeness and transparency."

This year, OOCL completed the verification of GHG reporting against ISO 14064-1, which specifies principles and requirements at the organization level for quantification and reporting of GHG emissions and removals. It includes requirements for the design, development, management, reporting and verification of an organization's GHG inventory.

"With this achievement, OOCL can reach out to a wider range of stakeholders and better prepare for the future in an industry where the importance of environmental protection and corporate sustainability will continue to grow," OOCL said.

On receiving the certification, Stephen Ng, Director of Trades of OOCL remarked: "This is the third consecutive year that OOCL completed the verification by using the CCWG standard. By extending the scope of the verification to include the ISO standard for greenhouse gas, it not only demonstrates our long-term commitment to emissions data integrity and environmental performance, but also enhances OOCL’s sustainability profile to a wider audience of stakeholders that appreciates greater transparency and forward-thinking green objectives."
