The Paris Agreement has increased environmental performance expectations from customers, regulators, and consumers. However, standardized data and forums that can help companies remain ahead of trends and regulation are few and far between. This report provides an update on the progress of BSR’s Clean Cargo Working Group (CCWG), now in its 13th year, and the annual disclosure of carbon-dioxide-emissions factors for ocean container transport collected from over 3,300 vessels.

CCWG includes 45 members representing 85 percent of ocean container cargo carriers and many customers. In 2016, CCWG Members have developed and adopted a Climate and Call to Action Statement, committing to improving the performance of ocean shipping and calling for increased ambition, collaboration, and action from all stakeholders for low-carbon logistics.

CCWG also continues to provide standardized methodologies to measure key environmental performance indicators and easy-to-use tools to reduce environmental impacts. The 2016 data collection shows an 8 percent reduction in carbon dioxide emissions per twenty-foot equivalent (TEU) per kilometer from the previous year.

Let’s talk about how BSR can help you to transform your business and achieve your sustainability goals.
