Issues and Policies

The critical environmental issues facing the shipping industry can be separated into several broad categories:

  • Emissions (including energy efficiency and consumption of fossil fuels)
  • Ballast water and Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS)
  • Cargo Residues
  • Waste Management (including oily wastes, spills, and leakages)

 As part of our commitment to reduce our environmental footprint, specific policies, objectives, and solutions have been developed for individual issues. Annual targets are established and progress is measured through industry programmes such as Green Marine’s partnership for the St. Lawrence and Great Lakes maritime industry, or through Fednav’s in-house performance indicators. These indicators are reviewed regularly as part of our drive for continuous improvement.
